The recent Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) popularity has made it easier to purchase any stocks, bonds or commodities, which the Wall Street has to offer. As far as purchasing the bonds, you will find that these investment instruments provide a very good source of secured income, but restrict the available cash of any investor. The following are the steps by which you can learn how to pick bonds with higher yields”:

Step 1 Get an account

Set up an online broker account. Try scottrade.com or fildelity.com to get the highest yields. You can log into your online brokerage account and buy the ETF or ETFs (for more than one). Make sure that your account is funded before buying the ETC otherwise there are chances of rejection of your transaction.

Step 2 See how much you can afford

Try to determine how you can invest in the bonds to get high yield dividend.

Step 3 Do some research

Pick the bond that has been examined by ETF with its long term and short term goals. Risk tolerance is very essential. You can take more risk if you are young as you have enough time to earn and work more compared to older adults, retirees etc. Check with the fees and expense ratio associated with ETF. And if you feel the fees are high you can move on to the next ETF with lower fees.

Step 4 Seek professional help if needed

Carefully weigh your decisions and if you are not comfortable with it, you should always consult a financial adviser for their ideas. Visit financial planner.com to find some of the best planners around with low fee advisory rates.

Picking a bond with higher yield is very good for investing your hard earned money.
