Some ETFs, called Inverse ETFs or Short ETFs, replicate the inverse performance of the index or benchmark, offering investors the chance to benefit from falling prices. Meanwhile Leveraged ETFs offer a fixed amount of leverage on the performance of an index, usually around 2:1 or 3:1.
The passive management of ETFs typically results in a low-cost structure relative to traditional funds. This benefit combined with the availability of leveraged or inverse tracking of specific indices or benchmarks, makes ETFs ideal for creating diversified portfolios. The trader can express individual views and preferences and gain efficient exposure to specific sectors, regions or indices.

Exchange Traded Commodities (ETCs) are similar to ETFs, except they track the performance of an underlying commodity index rather than a stock market index.
ETCs are also traded in the same manner as Stocks but provide exposure to a range of commodities and commodity indices, which include energy, agriculturals, metals and softs. ETCs are open-ended securities like ETFs and are asset backed by physical bullion or commodity (Futures) contracts.
Benefits of Exchange Traded Commodities:
- Easy access to the markets – ETCs are traded as Stocks on an exchange.
- Low cost
- High liquidity.
- Transparent pricing.
- No margin calls or need to roll contracts.
EG’s online ETC range
EG offers access to ETCs that cover the following categories of commodities: Livestock, Diversified Broad, Agriculture, Energy, Industrial Metals, and Precious Metals. The ETCs offered are tradable on London Stock Exchange and Euronext Paris.
EG provides an extensive list of mutual funds listed on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. These regulated funds cover a range of asset classes, regions and sectors and enable traders to diversify an investment portfolio by employing products that can be traded throughout the day on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange.
As ETFs/ETCs trade on regular Stock exchanges, commissions follow the commissions for Stock trading on the exchanges.
Use ETF/ETC portfolio as collateral for margin trading
We normally allow up to 75% of the current value of your ETF investments (50% of ETC) as collateral for margin trading.
Live Market Data
By default, clients have access to delayed market data on the equities (including ETFs/ETCs) and futures exchanges on which they are enabled to trade.
To receive real-time market data, clients will have to subscribe to the individual exchanges. A subscription to live price data from an exchange gives you access to live prices on Stocks, Single Stock CFDs, ETFs/ETCs and CFDs on ETFs/ETCs from the particular exchange.
No Depository Fee
EG does not charge an annual depository fee for ETCs.
