Does this track the price of oil accurately? This ETF does not track it well, because oil is based upon West Texas crude and its long term one-year contract. That eliminates the whole issue of contango. It does track the spot price, but you have contango issues.

A closed end fund. They buy financials, and then issue a split share to the purchasers, one part preferred and the other equity. Whenever he looks at something offers a 10%-11% yield, and none of the components stocks are paying that, that raises a question. If he were selling Covered Calls, he would expect to get 10%-11% if he were selling the Calls against a whole basket of stocks that he had purchased. On this, that only happens sometimes, not all the time. There is some leverage going on here. Never trust yield.

A high technology ETF that is complementary to this? There are many, many different kinds of high technology ETF’s, but some are quite niche. PowerShares has a lot of that sort of niche stuff, which you might want to take a look at.

A very interesting way and a little more diversifying, then what he normally does, of Covered Calls. He likes the product, but doesn’t buy it himself because he deals with a client base that is fairly mature.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this if you are looking for an EAFE Index. There are several of them out there and they sort of repeat one another.
