Mining Boom ETFdb Portfolio Now Available

by on October 22, 2012 | ETFs Mentioned:

The Mining Boom ETFdb Portfolio is now available to ETFdb Pro members with a free 7-day trial of the Pro subscription. This new portfolio, one of more than 50 all-ETF model portfolios available at, is designed for investors who wish to overweight exposure to the mining industry through the equity and bond markets, excluding any investments in physical metals. This investment strategy may appeal to those who want to beef up their portfolio’s exposure to this highly cyclical and lucrative industry as the global recovery picks up steam [see Free 7 Simple & Cheap All-ETF Model Portfolios].

The Mining Boom ETFdb Portfolio is well-diversified across both broad and niche segments in the industrial and precious metals industry. Instead of physically-backed investments, this ETFdb portfolio seeks more indirect exposure to the price of metals, through investments in companies that explore, extract and produce these commodities. This side-step exposure allows investors to hold securities over a longer duration, and means they are not at risk of contango or other dilemmas faced when making a “pure play” in the commodity futures market [see also Agri-Bull ETFdb Portfolio].

In an effort to cover the entire mining industry, we have also rounded out exposure to government bonds from the mining-intensive nations of Canada and Australia; this approach results in a well-balanced strategy that stabilizes the inconsistent returns that may be associated with mining companies.

The complete Mining Boom ETFdb Portfolio is available to ETFdb Pro members or with a free 7-day trial to ETFdb Pro. Also check out our Monthly Dividend ETFdb Portfolio as well as our 8% Yield ETFdb Portfolio.

Included with the ETFdb Pro subscription are more than 50 all-ETF model portfolios, including both retirement-focused and more tactical-themed strategies. To see all that is included, a free sample of the Emerging & Frontier Markets ETFdb Portfolio  is available to all ETFdb readers.
