Exchange traded funds or ETF for short, have exploded in popularity in the last few years. They continue to grow and many people are implementing them in place of traditional mutual funds. An ETF is similar to a mutual fund, but the most noticeable difference is that it is traded on the stock exchanged, allowing investors and traders to enter and exit with ease. ETF products are created to follow a specific index, market sector, and even a commodity or currency. If there is a market you want exposure too, then you will likely find an exchanged traded fund.
