One thing i like about etfs is that it allow you to bet on certain macro trend without too high of an exposure to certain stock and also of its low fees of course.
One thing to be careful about etfs is that always choose those that has high activity / volume else they might just close the fund halfway through
Yep, although with most US ETFs they're quite active / liquid unless you're looking at really specific stuff
Certainly sector / country ETFs there's no worries about liquidity - even the 2/3x Bull/Bear leveraged ones have quite decent volume.

You can buy some UTs through FSM - AmPrecious Metals / RHB-OSK Gold And General Fund

So buying UTs and ETFs with similar holdings from discount brokers not much difference except for NAV pricing and flexible trading hours?
Well if you have a UT with the same fees as an ETF , tracking the same index your return would be pretty much the same.
