Bond ETFs

The Bond Exchange Traded Funds invest in many kinds of different bonds (depending on issuer or duration). The bond ETFs may widely differ, ranging from U.S. Treasuries to high yields, from long-term to short-term, from corporate bonds to government bonds. Such ETFs are passively managed, which means that they are tracking a chosen index by holding a basket of bonds representing that index. Some bond ETFs base on diversified all-in-one portfolio to the entire bond market while other ETFs are designed to allow traders with creating their own bond portfolios. The Bond ETFs are designed for investors who are looking for more flexible investments and transparency. Nevertheless, the bond ETFs generate trading commissions and they are more suitable for investors who trade less frequently. Bond is a debt investment issued for more than one year with the purpose of rising capital by borrowing. The price of Bond ETFs will rise when interest rates fall and decline when rates rise.
