Can I exchange an ETF that I already have for a new one?

The process of selling shares of one ETF and purchasing shares of another has two steps—similar to the process for buying and selling stocks. First, you’ll need to sell shares of the ETF; the proceeds of the sale will be available in your settlement fund within your account. Once the proceeds settle, two business days after the trade date, you can purchase shares of another security.
