In April’s Sharesight20ASX snapshot the crown for the most traded stock again went to S&P ASX 300 index tracking ETF Vanguard Australian Shares (ASX: VAS) with investors considering recent falls in the index as a good opportunity to pick up the index at a discount. Interest in the two bear themed ETFs we first saw in March (ASX: BBOZ) & (ASX: BBUS) fell away slightly, though we also saw the BetaShares crude oil ETF (ASX: OOO) break into the monthly snapshot for the first time.
