You didn't mention ETFs. ETFs are also a pool of stocks versus individual stocks, so they reduce risk, but they trade like individual stocks immediately, not waiting for the close of the market for the day. Many can be bought for zero commission, and have low fees or expense ratios.
The ETFs can be structured around a industry (utilities, technology, financials, etc.) or structured around themes (pot stocks, retail, medical, auto industry, pets, etc.), or even around market indexes. I have a couple built around the defense industry that are kicking butt.
