What are Hedge Funds?

The hedge funds are private investment funds that are managed by a single director and invest in a wide range of markets using a wide range of instruments. Hedge funds are often open and allow any investor to participate if he can meet the minimum entrance amount. Some other funds are closed to investors. Hedge funds can benefit from both bull and bear market using derivatives. In 2012 the size of the global hedge fund industry was estimated at 2.13 trillion US dollars. » Hedge Funds at Trading Center

What is an ETF and List

What is an ETF?ETFs Value

The Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) were introduced during the 80s. ETFs are funds that aim to track indices like the S&P 500 and the Dow Industrial. ETFs simply replicate the performance of a particular index. An ETF is a fund that is traded like a common stock. By investing in an ETF, an investor enjoys the diversification effect of an index fund but also the ability to buy on margin and to sell short. Furthermore, the expense ratio of an ETF is usually lower than the expense ratio of a mutual fund. » Exchange Traded Funds at TradingCenter.org
