Prices of equities are starting to slip once more as growth projections around the world decline, and highly diversified exposure to the U.S. market may be the best way to make good plays in a lackluster environment, according to an article on Zacks.

The following ETFs were outlined in the article for their broad exposure to the U.S. market, as each hold over 2,000 securities:

  • Vanguard Russell 3000 ETF (NYSEArca: VTHR)
  • iShares Russell 3000 Index Fund (NYSEArca: IWV)
  • FlexShares Morningstar U.S. Market Factor Tilt Index ETF (NYSEArca: TILT)
