FP Markets adds ETFs CFDs to its MT5 platform
July 19, 2022 - FP Markets has added ETFs CFDs to its wide range of products available to trade on the global markets.
ETFs are a type of pooled investment security traded on a stock exchange in the same way that a regular stock can be traded. Rather than holding only one underlying asset as one would with a stock, ETFs are a type of fund that holds multiple underlying assets.
Unlike mutual funds, ETF share prices fluctuate throughout the day as the ETF is traded whereas mutual funds trade just once a day after the market closes. FP Markets offers various ETFs that contain many types of investments, including stocks, commodities, bonds or a mixture of investment types.
Stock ETFs include a selection of stocks to track a specific industry or entire sector. Bond ETFs, commonly known as Fixed Income ETFs, allow traders to invest in various fixed income securities like corporate bonds or treasuries. Industry or sector ETFs can either focus on a particular sector or industry.
Commodity ETFs allow traders to invest in commodities such as crude oil or gold. ETFs like these are important to investors because they allow a diverse investment portfolio, hold shares cheaper than the actual physical possession of the commodity and earn gains from stock declines by shorting stocks.
Some specific ETFs offered by FP Markets are:
- iShares MSCI ACWI ETF (ACWI.xnms)
- SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF (BIL.arcx)
- Vanguard Total Bond Market ETF (BND.xnms)
- SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD.arcx)
- iShares Core MSCI Emerging Mkts ETF (IEMG.arcx)
- Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 ETF (QQQ.xnms)
- SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY.arcx) and many more
A full list of ETFs available via the FP Markets MT5 Platform is available on the FP Markets website.
