Question

How are ETFs priced?

Answer

As ETFs track the performance of a particular index, their base price is closely related to the value of the underlying benchmark.  ETFs are also open ended allowing more units to be created when demand requires, so their price is not dictated by supply and demand, but reflects the underlying value of the assets.
