Throughout the past week I have highlighted five exchange-traded funds (ETFs), one each day, on my radio show Making Money with Doug Fabian. The majority of these funds have been in the natural resources sector — an area which I think has a vast amount of investment opportunity going forward.

So, for those of you who didn’t get a chance to listen this week, here are the five ETFs we talked about from last Thursday’s show through today’s show.

Market Vectors Gold Miners (GDX) — This ETF seeks to replicate the performance of the Amex Gold Miners Index. GDX includes the common stocks and ADRs of selected companies involved primarily in the mining of gold and silver. The fund boasts a very low expense ratio of 0.55%.

streetTRACKS Gold Shares (GLD) — The objective of this ETF is for its shares to reflect the performance of the price of gold bullion. When you buy GLD, you basically are betting on the price of the actual precious metal, gold. GLD’s expense ratio is just 0.40%.

Claymore/BNY BRIC ETF (EEB) — This ETF seeks investment results that correspond generally to the performance of the BNY BRIC Select ADR Index. The acronym BRIC stands for Brazil, Russia, India, and China. With an expense ratio of 0.60%, this ETF is a very inexpensive way to get foreign equity exposure.

PowerShares Listed Private Equity Portfolio (PSP) — This interesting fund seeks to replicate the Red Rocks Listed Private Equity Index, which includes more than 30 U.S. publicly traded companies with direct investments in more than 1,000 private businesses. At an expense ratio of 0.60%, you’d be hard pressed to find an easier or less costly way into the private equity market.

United States Oil Fund (USO) — The United States Oil Fund is an ETF designed to track the movement of light, sweet crude oil, which also is known as West Texas Intermediate. The portfolio will consist of listed crude oil futures contracts and other oil-related futures, forwards, and swap contracts. Its low expense ratio of 0.50% lets virtually anyone play with the big oil boys in Texas and on Wall Street.
