What is an ETF?

ETF stands for Exchange-Traded fund.

Exchange-Traded means you can buy and sell ETFs on public stock exchanges like the Nasdaq or the New York Stock Exchange.

In this context, a fund is a bundle of assets (usually stocks, bonds and/or cash). These bundles usually track an index, or group of securities with something in common.
