ETFs, Exchange Traded Funds, are one of the most popular investment instruments in the world. They allow traders to invest in many companies with even small initial capital. Let’s see how it works.
What are Exchange Traded Funds?
Every trader wants to earn money. The base is to buy shares of some prosperous companies. But what happens if the firm goes bankrupt? You lose your funds.
To avoid such a situation you may invest in stocks of a few different companies. Your money is split between them and even if one loses, you still earn profits from the others. The problem is that your attention must be also divided between many different markets. You should constantly look for new possibilities and follow the situation in the markets where you have already invested capital. You must then be active and take fast decisions on whether to buy or sell a particular share. Another thing is that many stocks nowadays are quite expensive to buy. If you want to have a bigger profit you must own more than one share. Plus commissions. This requires massive capital to start with.
ETFs can help you diversify a securities portfolio with a smaller initial input. Buying an ETF mean that you obtain part of a specific set of stocks. Moreover, a single ETF costs a relatively small amount of money.
