    Good move I think, when it comes to finances the use of subjective words like 'defensive' should be avoided, actually just saying what the fund consists of makes more sense.

    WHY don't the banksters also change the words 'Quantitative Easing' to PRINTING MONEY OUT OF THIN AIR ?

    or

    Teach finance in schools ?

    They use all these fancy words nobody understands on purpose, they want the general public to have little or no understanding other than to save in a bank.
    As an investor, you know that any kind of investment opportunity has its risks, and investing in Stocks or Precious Metals is highly speculative. All of the content I post is for informational purposes only.
