Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)

By CoinGecko | Updated on Mar 03, 2020
An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a form of security that tracks a collection of securites such as stocks, bonds, index or cryptocurrency but tradeable like a single stock. In many ways, it is similar to mutual funds except they are usually listed on exchanges and ETF shares are tradeable very much like regular stocks.
