An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund that trades on the stock market.
An ETF holds assets such as shares, commodities, bonds, etc.
Most ETFs track an index (e.g. the Top-40 index).
One advantage of ETFs is their low costs.
ETFs trade like normal shares.
The price of an ETF rises and falls during the day as it is traded.
