And not only do energy ETFs have a lot of advantages over other investments (such as the tax advantages), but they can also be a cost-efficient asset as well.

And for those who want to see which energy ETFs are the best fit for a portfolio, we can help...

However, for advanced ETF investors who like to utilize inverse and leveraged exchange traded funds (and notes), I've broken these energy funds out by investment type. So if you are looking for leveraged or inverse energy ETFs then these lists are for you. I've given you three different versions. A list of leveraged energy ETFs, a list of inverse energy ETFs, and a list of energy funds that are both leveraged and inverse...

And as more leveraged and inverse energy ETFs come to market (or if any get delisted), I'll be sure and update these lists, so check back often.

However, using advanced and innovative strategies like leveraged and inverse funds, is not for the faint of heart. There are a lot of risks involved and these types of funds act very differently than other funds. Also, they are not without their controversy. So I highly recommend you not only thoroughly research any funds on this list, but look deeper into how leveraged and inverse ETFs work.

Watch how they react to different market conditions, how they react to their benchmarks and how they impact your portfolio.

And if you have any questions, be sure to consult a financial professional such as a trust advisor or your broker. However, once you feel confident in your findings, then good luck with all of your trades.
