Exchange traded funds, or ETFs are one of the fastest growing areas of investment. An exchange traded fund is a fund type that tracks assets such as commodities, an index, shares, and bonds but trades like a common stock. By owning an ETF, investors get the diversification of buying an entire index at a more affordable cost.
ETFs are one of the most popular ‘passive investments’, which have over the last few years been competing with more traditional ‘active investments’ like mutual funds and hedge funds. Typically, ETFs have lower fees than mutual funds and can easily be bought and sold during trading hours.
ETF investing is ideal for those wishing for a simple way to diversify their share trading.
Trading ETFs allows you to trade various companies on the stock market at once, such as US technology, with ease.
Take a position on whether an ETF will go up or down without having to own any assets, such as shares or commodities.
Trading with leverage means that not as much capital is needed to trade. This gives ETF traders the opportunity to increase position size, amplifying potential gains and losses.
