Group A: Major stock index ETF’s

A stock index ETF tracks the upward and downward movement of a stock index. Another way of putting it is saying that in buying a major stock index ETF you are buying the underlying stock index.

More and more investors prefer an index ETF as this automatically will give them a balanced risk spread. Another point mentioning is that the trend of a particular index ETF is more predictable than price movements of individual stocks.

Here you will find an overview of the major stock index ETF’s I am following on a daily basis. In some of them I already have established a position, in others I am reducing or extending current positions. Closely watching these stock index ETF’s allows me to entry and exit timely.
