Exchange Traded Funds, or commonly known just as an ‘ETF’ is an investment asset that is traded on a stock exchange just like a stock or commodity might. However, unlike a stock, ETF’s hold various assets inside the principal ETF and are price weighted.

What are some of the major ETFs? And how do they work?
