Attention Australian investors:

Welcome!

Do you already invest and/or trade in the Australian share market?

If so, are you looking for ways to diversify your existing investment Portfolio, using ETFs?

Or, are you frustrated with tenants, maintenance costs and your net rental returns from residential real estate?

Or, maybe you were looking forward to retirement, only to discover Bank interest payable on your nest egg today is a mere fraction of a few years ago?

Or, are you a ‘Millennial’, born in the early 1980’s to mid 1990’s, flat out busy at work or in your own business, have heard that many other younger people are now investing in ETFs ….. but you haven’t got the foggiest idea on how to get started?

Stop searching - you are now on the right page……..

" What is an ETF? "


 “An ETF is a type of investment fund that can be bought and sold on a securities exchange market. In Australia, ordinary ETFs are 'passive' investments that track an asset or market index (for example, the ASX200 Australian share index). They generally do not try to outperform the market and will go up or down in value in line with the Index they are tracking.

 

ETFs are available for a broad range of assets including Australian shares, international shares, fixed income products, foreign currencies, precious metals and commodities. They can be used as a way to diversify your investment portfolio, and usually have lower fees than a traditional managed fund." *

( * Please refer to ASIC’s website for more details, including Physical ETFs, Synthetic ETFs, Active ETFs and ETF specific risks).


Some more background on ETFs



Here is some more background info. on Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs):

  1. ETFs can be bought and sold simply, just like shares and on the same trading platforms

  2. Unlike real estate, there are no large legal fees, stamp duties or LMI loan fees on settlement and if you need cash at any time, you do not have to sell the whole investment

  3. Similar to shares, many ETFs pay dividends, which allow extra yields to be added to capital growth

  4. Generally, ETFs are NOT stock specific - they are typically spread across many components. As a result, they tend to be less volatile than individual shares.

  5. As at December 2017, there were over 250 ETFs to choose from in Australia.

  6. Originally, ETFs were based on key Indices. e.g. ASX200, S&P500 etc. With the ever increasing range of ETFs, Australians can now invest in many markets, including global banks, emerging/Asian/European markets, global health and many more - without the need to leverage, open international accounts or worry about exchange rates.

  7. The addition of ETFs can be regarded as a natural progression for those investors and traders (e.g. after they have learnt how to trade shares safely and wisely) -- as another “string to their bow” as an additional income stream for creating wealth.

“ 3 of the Biggest Problems...."



Whether you are a complete beginner or are experienced, 3 of the biggest problems most ETF Investors face are knowing:

 

WHICH ETFs to Buy ?

 

2. WHEN to Buy ETFs?   and. More importantly

 

3. When to SELL  ETFs?

 

ETF Investors tend to either:

        • Buy too late - just before prices fall, or  

        • Sell too soon – leaving substantial profits 'on the table', or  

        • Sell too late - wiping profits or at large losses, or 

        • Don't sell at all - and live in hope ! 

 

Far too often, many investors see their hard earned capital wilt away ……

“ Back to the Drawing Board ”



Our aim was to design an ETF Portfolio with 10 ETFs in rising trends, such that Investors:

 

1)    Can join us at any time once its opened, then invest in exactly the same ETFs AND

 

2)    Thereby match the performance of that ETF Portfolio on a monthly basis.

 

To do so, we went "..back to the drawing board..". Here are just 4 of the key problems which needed to be solved:

 

  1. How to choose WHICH 10 of the over 250 ETFs to include?

 

  1. Once ETFs are in stable rising trends, they tend not to correct and give as many traditional Entry Signals as shares – so we needed to develop a new Initial Entry approach for ETFs.

 

  1. For those ETF investors who miss the initial entry, but want to enter the same trade later, we also needed to find a new and easy-to-follow method - with a range of recommended entry prices.

 

  1. New Money and Risk Management Rules, designed specifically for this ETF Portfolio. After all, ETFs are still subject to unexpected market movements and global events. 

Announcing the New Super '10 ETF Portfolio Signals Service'



We are very pleased to announce that after months of trial and testing, we ‘cracked the code’ and discovered practical and realistic solutions to the 4 key problems above.

Our focus was to come up with new ways to:

1) Enter into 10 Australian ETFs in rising trends -- without waiting for a traditional entry signal ( like we do with shares) 

2) Allow others to join later with a range of entry prices 

3) Money and risk Management to suit i) and ii)

Overall, ETFs tend to be less volatile than shares as they are not stock specific e.g. those ETFs which cover Indices. As such, do not expect such high returns as shares. However, if we can have a group of 10 ETFs gradually trending upwards with:

 

  • New ETF Entry rules

 

  • New ETF Money & Risk Management risk rules in place, along with

 

  • New ETF Exit rules

 

  • Hopefully minimal ‘churning’ - so we can have longer term positions with less exit triggers and less need to find replacements ( and, in turn, less transaction costs)

 

  • Receive dividends (where applicable) and

 

  • Target ETF Portfolio annual returns hopefully far greater than residential real estate and bank interest (We intend to post performance reviews on this page in the future)**

 

then, as a Member, we trust you will be pleased with the new ‘Super 10 ETF Portfolio’ Signals Service as an additional ‘string to your bow’ - to diversify your investing.


**  Performance  Caution: The future performance of this product should not be assumed based upon current or past performance alone.  Caution should be exercised in assessing future claims of performance, as these are based on assumptions and structured estimates. This product, like all other financial products, is subject to market forces and unpredictable events that may adversely affect future performance..


In addition, the ETFs nominated in this 'Super 10 ETF Portfolio Signals' Service are for Australian and global markets. 

Each ETF may be purchased on local trading platforms in Australia, so there is no need to open a separate overseas account.



The Super 10 ETF Portfolio Signals Service comprises 5 workbook 'Logs'  within a user friendly Excel spreadsheet: 

1.    ETF Portfolio ENTRIES Log

 

2.    ETF Portfolio EXITS Log

 

3.    OPEN ETF positions Log

 

4.    CLOSED ETF positions Log

 

5.    Weekly Summary Log

 

The latest closing prices, Stop loss types and prices are updated each weekend. You will be emailed when the latest updates Signals sheets are ready for you to download.

 

If applicable, Exit Signals are generally triggered at the end of each week, so usually you will only need to download once a week, then check that latest update.

 

However, if an Exit (or Entry) Signal is triggered during the week, we will also post an interim update and email you before the Open of the next trading day.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The Super 10 ETF Portfolio Signals are NOT ‘set and forget’, so you will need to check developments and decide whether to take action when Exit and Entry Signals occur.


Your financial independence is at the heart of everything we teach, so if you have any queries:

ETF Signals Launch Update


 Launched !


Update 23 January 2018: 

On Sunday 10th December 2017 we launched our new Australian 'Super 10 ETF Signals Portfolio' Signals Service Service, with 7 Entry Signals.

 

On Thursday 4th January 2018, the Entry prices for 3 more ETF Entry Signals were met, so the 10 inaugural notional positions for our ETF Portfolio are now filled.

 

We have deliberately chosen these 10 ETFs:

 

  1. To represent a diverse range of stock markets from across the world

 

  1. To be in smooth Rising Trends

 

  1. To be available for purchase in Australia, without the need to open an account to trade overseas

 

From here, on behalf of our ETF Signals Members, we are now continuing to:

 

  1. Monitor all 10 notional ETF positions daily and report closing prices and notional Portfolio Values weekly

 

  1. Progressively update the suggested Maximum Entry prices for all 10 notional ETF positions as applicable, so that Members can join and enter the same ETFs later

 

  1. Monitor our 5 purpose designed ETF Stop Loss types, including switch Stop Loss types where applicable and update values

 

  1. Advise Members if any Exit Signals are subsequently generated – either based on Friday’s Close or if any of the ETFs trigger a Hard Stop or Emergency Stop midweek

 

  1. If so, we will then scan our ‘Super 10 ETF Watch List’ (which Jim and I filtered from over 250 ETFs currently available) and look for a new Entry Signal for a replacement ETF.


(This is a different process from how we run our Trading and Investing Signals for shares - as for those Services we continually post new Entry Signals as they occur).

 

  1. In addition, as we explained in Edition 647 of our ‘Investing & Online Trading’ Report,

 

“….If any underperform, but do not trigger Stops, we reserve the right to amend our Plan in time. This may indeed include switching from a poorer performing ETF into another ETF down the track if we consider such a switch is warranted.  “

 

 

Overall, ETFs tend to be less volatile than shares as they are NOT stock specific and they are  intended to represent Funds or Indices. As such, do not expect such high returns as some shares.

  

However, if we can have a group of 10 ETFs, all gradually trending upwards:

 

  • With minimal ‘churning’ - so we can have longer term positions with less exit triggers and less need to find replacements ( and, in turn, less transaction costs)

  • Receive dividends (where applicable) and

  • Target annual returns hopefully far greater than residential real estate and bank interest*. 


( * The future performance of the ‘Super 10 ETF Signals’ Service should not be assumed based upon current or past performance alone.  Caution should be exercised in assessing future claims of performance, as these are based on assumptions and structured guesses.  This service, like all other financial products, is subject to market forces and unpredictable events that may adversely affect future performance.)


then we trust our ETF Signals Members will be pleased with the new Super 10 ETF Signals Portfolio' as an additional ‘string to their bow’ - to add to their current stock/share trading and investing.
