ETF Holdings - Exchange Traded Funds Securities List

by The trader, 1503 days ago

Each Exchange Traded Fund is composed of one or several assets or securities. The Russell Top 200 Index Fund ETF (Symbol: IWL), for example, tracks the performance of the Russell 2000 Index. The ETF managers will then buy stocks that compose the Russell 2000 Index in order to create an investment vehicle that produces almost the same performance than the underlying index, which is of course the Russell 2000.

As of October 10, 2010, the ETF is composed of 194 securities including Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM), Apple (AAPL), Microsoft Corp (MSFT), General Electric (GE), Procter&Gamble (PG), Intl Business Machines Corp (IBM), Johnson&Johnson (JNJ), AT&T Inc (T), Chevron Corp (CVX), JPMorgan Chase&Co (JPM)...

These 194 securities are not fixed and over time they could be sold while other stocks are bought. This means that the composition of the majority of ETFs is constantly changing with changes in the composition of their underlying security.
In order to get a complete list of each ETF holding over time, this trading object downloads, for iShares ETF, historical data of ETF holdings. The data is stored in a custom database "etf_holdings1" in a field called "holdings". After data is downloaded for all our Exchange Traded Funds, "holdings" field will contain a list of symbols for each ETF at each end of month. The list of symbols is stored in a single line where symbols are separated by a semi-colon. Example: XOM;AAPL;MSFT;GE;PG;IBM;JNJ;T;CVX;JPM;BRK/B;PFE;BAC;GOOG;CSCO;KO;WFC;MRK.

For iShares ETFs holding, you can also use ETF Number of securities, percent stock and cash - Historical Data. This item gets the number of ETF holdings, the percentage of assets invested in securities, the % of cash to total net assets and the % of assets allocated to other items.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
