Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are one of the most popular and flexible investments for traders and investors. Not only do ETFs give instant diversification, but they can also offer leverage and transparency.
An ETF is a bundle of securities that are traded on the exchange, much like a stock. Its price will go up or down as investors buy or unload shares of the fund.
ETFs are structured, managed, and regulated (for the most part) like a mutual fund. Unlike mutual funds, ETFs are traded throughout the trading day.
Types of ETFs
An individual exchange-traded fund can hold thousands of stocks from every market sector, a few dozen stocks from a specific industry, a handful of commodities like corn or coffee, or even a basket of currency pairs.
According to ETFGI, there are 5,025 ETFs trading globally. 2,200 of those funds are traded in the United States alone.
ETFs typically fall into one of these 8 categories:
- Stock Funds
- Bond Funds
- International Funds
- Sector Funds
- Commodity Funds
- Currency Funds
- Real Estate Funds
- Specialty Funds
