ETFs vs Index & Mutual Funds

They are all basket of assets you are trading in bulk:

  • Mutual funds are actively managed, meaning their fees are rather high.
  • Index Funds are just tracking a segment of the market. Low fees but are only priced once a day. It's the preferred passive investment strategy. 
  • ETF are like a combination of the two. They are more versatile & usually track industries, commodities etc. ETFs are more akin to equities than to mutual funds. They can be bought like individual stocks.

What Is an Inverse ETF?

An inverse ETF is an exchange traded fund (ETF) constructed by using various derivatives to profit from a decline in the value of an underlying benchmark. Investing in inverse ETFs is similar to holding various short positions, which involve borrowing securities and selling them with the hope of repurchasing them at a lower price.

An inverse ETF is also known as a "Short ETF" or "Bear ETF."

 Investing defined

Investing is about laying out cash or assets now, in the hope of more cash or assets returning to you tomorrow, or next year, or next decade.

Most of the time, this is best achieved through the acquisition of productive assets.
