  • Trading Index ETFs

    ETFs are passively managed investment funds traded publicly on stock exchanges in the same manner as traditional Stocks. An increasingly popular product, ETFs combine the benefits of investing in stocks with the advantages of mutual fund.


    Each ETF tracks an index or benchmark, meaning the objective for an ETF is to replicate the performance of the index or benchmark that it is tracking. ETFs track specific Stock, Bond, Commodity or Currency Indices, some of which have a regional focus, while others have a sector focus, thus making them ideal for diversifying portfolios.

    Versatile, low-cost trading with ETFs:

    Some ETFs, called Inverse ETFs or Short ETFs, replicate the inverse performance of the index or benchmark, offering investors the chance to benefit from falling prices. Meanwhile, Leveraged ETFs offer a fixed amount of leverage on the performance of an index, usually around 2:1 or 3:1.

    The passive management of ETFs typically results in a low-cost structure relative to traditional funds. This benefit combined with the availability of leveraged or inverse tracking of specific indices or benchmarks, makes ETFs ideal for intelligently creating diversified portfolios. The trader can express individual views and preferences and gain exposure to specific sectors, regions or indices.

    Trade ETFs from some of the world's largest Tier 1 fund managers Saxo Capital Markets offers access to a wide range of Exchange Traded Funds from various Tier one providers such as iShares, Powershares, Rydex, StreetTRACKS, SGAM ETFs and Lyxor ETFs.
