ETFs, or Exchange Traded Funds, are a type of investment fund that tracks indices, bonds, commodities and other instruments, combined in a basket of assets such as bitcoin trading platform, stocks, commodities and more.

What is ETF Trading
An ETF is a collection of assets put together, to permit traders to trade in a few markets simultaneously. The baskets are usually combined together with a common characteristic such as energy instruments, agriculture instruments and others. If you wish to trade a stock, commodity and bonds all together you can simply trade in the ETF market.
Some ETFs track the performance of a specific nation’s equity market. Examples are the MSCI Brazil Index Fund, MSCI South Korea Index Fund and others. ETFs also make it possible to invest in certain industry sectors. Examples offered by TradesFX are the Dow-Jones U.S. Real Estate Index Fund and the Energy Select Sector SPDR. It is important to know that all ETFs are traded as CFDs.
ETFs are traded as a basket of assets – stocks, commodities and more, put together per sector. If you speculate that the energy market, for instance, will go up, you can invest in a few trades simultaneously. A prominent advantage of ETFs is that often they balance each other out; if one instrument’s value goes down, another instrument’s value can go up and even it out. If the price of crude oil goes down, as part of the energy basket, a stock of the same basket might even it out.
