How to trade ETFs - Investment themes

Just like stocks, UBS ETFs can be traded daily on exchange through your financial advisor or via your brokerage account. High-net-worth private investors and financial advisors can also trade larger volumes via OTC (over-the-counter) trading. UBS ETFs are characterized by a high level of liquidity with narrow bid/ask spreads in both on-exchange and OTC trading.

ETF investing is a wise strategy for new and experienced investors alike and offers several different trading options. When investing in ETFs it is worth considering the choices and discussing these with your financial advisor before deciding on the most suitable ETF investment for your portfolio.

ETFs trade intraday, like stocks or bonds, so they can be bought and sold rapidly in response to market movements. Trading like stocks, you can access many of the tools that stock traders use when placing orders. As with stocks, when investors buy ETFs on all major exchanges, they can be sold without holding for a set period of time. The biggest difference when buying or selling an ETF is instead of investing in a single asset, you are buying a fund which can hold dozens or even hundreds of stocks. It is effectively trading a collection of stocks at the same time.

If you are starting out with exchange-traded funds, passive ETFs are the easiest to grasp. With a selection of low cost index funds available, they simply replicate an index that tracks a broad market or specific sector. Passive index fund investing is therefore a good introduction to trading ETF products.

ETC investment is another way of investing in index funds on the commodities markets. ETCs give investors access to global commodities markets such as energy, precious metals and agriculture. Actively managed ETFs share more similarities with traditional mutual funds: they employ fund managers who buy ETF on your behalf and select individual securities that they believe will outperform the market.
