I own shares in 6 out of these top 10 holdings. My brokerage has zero commission ETFs which I took advantage of here. I purchased 200 units at $22.49 on October 26. I put in a good to cancel order to sell these units. I will hold this ETF until my order gets filled. In the mean time, I will collect any dividends that this ETF will pay me. There will be a commission on the sale.
