This category lists individual exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and ETF families. Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are open-end funds that trade in real-time in stock exchanges, like if they were ordinary company stock. They combine some of the advantages of stocks with those of mutual funds. ETFs are generally based on tax-efficient indices, and are therefore good choices for passive, buy-and-hold investment strategies. Unlike stocks, which cannot be shorted on a 'down-tick', they can be shorted on a down-tick. Moreover, unlike mutual funds, ETFs can have stop and/or limit orders.
