ETFs

ETFs are exchange-traded funds that just invest in the same proportion as the index they track. Each ETF tracks a particular index – equity, debt or gold indices. They are popular among passive investors who do not have time or interest to trade in stocks directly but want to participate in the markets. ETFs closely match the returns of securities represented in the Indices. Another important point is that ETFs trade on exchanges so you can buy or sell them like any other stock.
