ETPs trading

Exchange Traded Products are investment products that track another investment instrument such as a commodity, currency, share price or interest rate.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are investment products that track an index, bond or basket of assets.

Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs) work in a similar way, either tracking specific commodities or an index of diversified commodities such as agriculture.
