The ETF Landscape

ETFs function akin to stocks; however, investors engage in the trading of β€˜units’ rather than conventional β€˜shares.’ These β€˜units’ can be bought or sold like stocks and have the added feature of being generated or liquidated to accommodate investor demand. Weekly monitoring of alterations in shares outstanding data unveils ETFs witnessing notable inflows (indicating the creation of multiple new units) or outflows (hinting at the destruction of old units). The initiation of new units entails the acquisition of underlying ETF holdings, while the elimination of units involves divesting underlying assets, thereby large flows possess the potential to influence the individual components held within ETFs.
