What is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)?
An exchange traded fund (ETF) is an instrument that tracks the performance of a pool of underlying assets – including commodities, stocks, currencies, indices and more. This unique feature of the product allows traders to diversify their portfolio as they gain exposure to multiple assets in a single trade.
ETFs are tradable on the stock exchange, but with Vantage, you can use a derivative product called Contracts for Differences (CFDs) to speculate on price movements of the underlying ETF.
When you trade CFDs, you do not own actual units of the underlying product, but rather, you trade based on the difference between the opening and closing prices of specific financial instruments.
With CFDs, you can go long or short on various market conditions.
