Most Popular ETFs: Top 100 ETFs By Trading Volume

The following table lists the top 100 most heavily traded exchange-traded products, highlighting the funds that will generally be the most liquid. Generally, ETFs with the highest average volume are used widely as trading vehicles among active traders.

The following table also includes the assets under management for each of these ETF, in thousands of U.S. dollars. These figures are updated daily; numbers will not reflect intraday activity.
