An Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges. ETFs are an option for investors seeking portfolio diversification because some ETFs allow you to have exposure to a variety of assets (including stocks, commodities and bonds) with the ease of trading a single security.
For example, instead of buying a large number of individual US technology stocks, you can invest in the US technology sector with a single ETF.
Some ETFs track an underlying index, such as the S&P 500, although others can invest in any number of industry sectors or use various strategies. There are all kinds of ETFs with all kinds of investment approaches. Below are four heavily traded ETFs as reported by Yahoo Finance:
