ETFs (Exchange Trade Funds) are tradable instruments that track a commodity, an index, bonds, or a basket of assets. Through ETF trading, traders have the opportunity to expose their portfolio to a specific market or industry and to hedge their investments. There are many different types of ETFs and they are very popular among traders worldwide.
Unlike traditional mutual funds that price once a day after the market closes, ETFs are traded on stock exchanges and can be bought and sold throughout the trading day at market prices.
There are thousands of ETFs available, covering a wide range of asset classes, sectors, geographic regions, and investment strategies.
Beyond broad-market ETFs, there are many that focus on specific niches or themes, such as clean energy, technology sectors, or specific geographic regions.
Some may get confused between ETFs and CFDs. The former is a type of instrument that pools in different shares of a certain kind to trade in them for the long-term with less risk than individual shares. The latter as a way to trade in instrument, including CFDs, without ownership but with the ability to leverage to increase the gains for an added risk.
ETFs are favorite with traders that look to buy and to hold into things long-term. Because they include a lot of shares, and mainly of the main company shares sold in a specific country and/or industry, they tend to go up over time. However, events that hit the entire market of a country and/or industry like inflation can make it fall. This means that it's still wise to check the news, like on the economic calendar, to avoid those issues.
