Some investors like to make interest rate plays and bond ETFs are a great way to play the yield curve. However, for investors who have a higher risk tolerance, junk bond ETFs may be the weapon of choice.

And one of the best advantages of ETFs is the way taxes are calculated on these assets, especially compared to other investments - ETF Tax Benefits

    And please understand that high yield (junk) bond ETFs are not for the beginning investor. They are for traders who use advanced strategies. So if this is your first look into high yield bond funds, be sure to conduct thorough research. Each fund on this list should be individually scrutinized. Look what is in the fund (or note), watch how it reacts to different market conditions, examine its historical performance. And if you have any questions or concerns, contact a financial professional such as your broker or advisor. No fund (or any investment) is without risk and the high yield bond ETFs on this list are no exception. They are not for the faint of heart, so due diligence is required...a must.

    However, once you are satisfied with your research and have made you investing decision, then good luck with these trades and all of your financial strategies.
