ETFs benefits and advantages of trading ETFs.
what is ETF trading
ETFs  exchange-traded funds are investment instruments made up of a selection or ‘basket’ of related assets. They are designed to track the performance of indices, sectors, commodities, bonds or currencies.

As investment funds, ETFs provide exposure to a portfolio of financial instruments but have the added value of being traded just like shares on a stock exchange.

What are Leveraged and Inverse ETFs?
Leveraged ETFs seek to deliver multiples of the performance of the index or other financial asset prices they track. Inverse ETFs (also called “short” funds) strives to deliver the opposite of the performance of the index or benchmark they track. Like traditional ETFs, some leveraged and inverse ETFs track broad indices, some are sector-specific, and others are linked to commodities, currencies, or some other financial benchmark. Inverse ETFs often are marketed as a way for investors to profit from, or at least hedge their exposure to, bearish markets.

Leveraged inverse ETFs (also known as “ultra short” funds) seek to produce a return that is a multiple of the inverse performance of the underlying asset. An inverse ETF that tracks a particular index, for example, seeks to deliver the inverse of the performance of that benchmark, while a 2x (two times) leveraged inverse ETF seeks to deliver double the opposite of that index’s performance. To accomplish their objectives, leveraged and inverse ETFs pursue a range of investment strategies through the use of swaps, futures contracts, and other derivative instruments.

Most leveraged and inverse ETFs “reset” daily, meaning that they are designed to achieve their stated objectives on a daily basis. Their performance over longer periods of time — over weeks or months or years — can differ significantly from the performance (or inverse of the performance) of their underlying index or benchmark during the same period of time. This effect can be magnified in volatile markets. As the examples below demonstrate, an ETF that is set up to deliver twice the performance of a benchmark from the close of trading on Day 1 to the close of trading on Day 2 will not necessarily achieve that goal over weeks, months, or years.
Investors have the opportunity to Maximize their trading experience with over 3,00 assets and over 30 ETFs to place trades with.

High Leverage, Low Margin
ETF brokers offer a leverage of up to 100:1 with a low margin, for the possibility of high capital on small
ETFs typically have lower management costs than mutual funds. And you can buy as little as one share.

Diversification
ETFs provide the ability to buy into a wide-range of investments, which can help spread out the risk.

Flexibility

ETFs can be bought or sold at any time during the trading day, just like stocks investments.
