S&P500 4h Outlook

Reddit Stock Market

11/05/2021 - 15:48

As some of you may know, most of the stocks has been falling in the recent days failed to impress buyers. Although ZKIN is listed on NASDAQ, we are looking at SPX500 because it's more used index to determine the trend stocks and there is a significant correlation between SPX and NASDAQ. If SPX falls below pivot support at 4120, it may drop further and sharp to 50 daily EMA at 4080, with stem dips to 4000 - 3980. SPX has to find support at 4120 - 4130 area, otherwise a stronger correction may occur that will impact every stock. Same applies for ZKIN. 4h overall trend has turned into an downtrend, but as it's pretty far away from these levels, we look at least for a correction higher before another drop, or just a sideways movement. RSI suggests that bearish momentum is present as trend of lower lows is active and RSI is below 40. MACD is in strong selling wave while the bearish volume is increasing. All in all, we look for the whole market to have an oversold correction to the upside but the lack of interest is a clear concern for bulls.   submitted by   /u/imphare [link]   [comments]

  2. What probability would you assign to the S&P500 index being below 4540 in 2051? (06/09/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Basically the question in the title: In 30 years, what are the chances that the S&P500 is below current levels? I know it's a low probability, and it's never happened before. The worst in history (in the US) is the 1929 crash which took the S&P500 around~25 years to recover. But I am wondering what everyone's feeling is? Is it 1 in 100? Or 1 in 1000? Or 1 in 10000? Related question: What would have to happen for the S&P500 index to be below current levels 30 years from today? What kind of events would lead to this? The reason I am asking is I am working on building (for fun) a variable coefficient stochastic volatility model for the S&P500 index using historical data of the index and VIX, and trying to use probabilities similar to the one in the title to further calibrate the model.   submitted by   /u/modern_football [link]   [comments]

  3. True CAGR + Dividends of S&P500 past 50 years? (15/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have heard way too many ranges of average CAGR of the S&P500 from 7% to 12% but this range is way to big. Can we discuss what is the TRUE average return of the S&P500 INCLUDING dividends as they are very important in regards to returns. Let’s look back maybe past 50 or so years?

    I’ve been hearing about an imminent correction by EOY. Since I can’t possibly predict when it’ll happen or if it’ll happen I want to DCA my way into buying S&P500.

  6. Update: SuperFund performance in last two weeks (bear market) (09/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hello everyone! Since my last post 2 weeks ago I have received a lot of messages requesting me to give an update on how my SuperFund did in the past 2 weeks of (bear) market. So here it is. If you are seeing it for the first time and wondering what the update is about then you can find my last post here: I created a SuperFund portfolio based on 13F filings of Super Investors Now, it's time for some good stuff! First things first, I am assuming that everyone agrees the bear market lasted from 22nd February till yesterday. So, the results discussed here are for those 2 weeks. In the following table you can see performance of SuperFund against S&P500 for the last 2 weeks. ​ Percentage change each day of the last 2 weeks Since 22nd February, SuperFund did +3.32% whereas S&P500 gave a return of -1.56%. As you can see the SuperFund outperformed S&P500 with a fair degree. In my last post I received some useful feedback that I should compare performance of SuperFund against not only S&P500 but also against NADAQ and QQQ. I took your feedback and included it in my method. If you're wondering what's the performance for the last 2 weeks? Here it is: Last 2 weeks performance of SuperFund compared against other benchmarks As you can see, SuperFund was not affected badly by the bearish market sentiment. Considering people's kind requests, I also decided to compare the performance of SuperFund against all these benchmark from the date I started this fund. Here it is: Overall performance of SuperFund against other benchmarks Here it is in graphical form for those who don't like numbers: Processing img 6ziyuyktw1m61... Someone also mentioned that I should compare SuperFund against top 10 holdings of S&P500. And so I did. Since I started the fund, it did +46.43% whereas top 10 S&P500 holdings gave a return of 11.56%. Note: If you compare this with the return from entire S&P500, you will notice how close the performance of top 10 holdings is to the overall index. This just indicates that the skewedness of S&P500. Anyway, here are some more numbers for some of you number lovers: Processing img mk8datkpx1m61... SuperFund is definitely (slightly) more volatile than the S&P500 index, but it also gives greater rewards. I also received other comments which I plan to address in future posts. I have already started working on analyzing historical data to tell me how SuperFund would have performed in past 10 and 20 years. I will be posting those updates on r/richdudepoordude. Please leave a comment to let me know if you would like me to add anything new to this.   submitted by   /u/chouhansolo [link]   [comments]

  10. Someone Wanna Tell Me Why I Can't Get an OFFICIAL List Of Constituents For the S&P500 Directly from S&P Global? (19/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Well.. I was gonna go me some programming today, but went on a rampage of trying to figure out where I can get an OFFICIAL list of the tickers for the S&P500 and it turns out the only place to do this is basically from Wikipedia and according to this github repo S&P Global use to have the data up, but then opted to remove it from the general public..? ​ Anyone know why this is the case? I kinda figured data like this would be readily available from such an index fund. All I want is a good source of truth (not that it REALLY matters for my purposes, but still annoying as hell). What gives?   submitted by   /u/GennaroIsGod [link]   [comments]

  11. S&P500 did 17.6% in first half of 2021, how did you do against the average? (06/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Interesting, its is very hard to beat the market and this has shown me how hard it truly is. I did some own research for June 30 and it was interesting what I came up with. Only 2 out of the 15 stocks I hold are beating the s&p500 as of June 30, while the rest are below it by 5-10%. Some that I have held and are long term holds, and I have done well over the time span but if I averaged it out, I believe would be close to this 17%. How is everyone doing against this benchmark? Do you reset your account at the end of the year to maximize gains? Are you happy, do you believe you can beat the SP 500 this year? What was the play that helps you beat the market at the moment.   submitted by   /u/learningman33 [link]   [comments]

  12. Thought on ETF's? (29/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    DISCLAIMER: I apologise for my English, it is not my first language. Like many others I have my doubts regarding where the market is heading, with the current state of the US economy, combined with the volatility and uncertainty related to the pandemic. When referring to the state of the US economy I mean the speed of inflation and national debt. I'm considering jumping on a few ETF's but I can't quite decide which one. I know that S&P500 and Nasdaq are the obvious choice for many, but I feel like they are overpriced at their current rate? or is it just me? I am considering if ETF's like JETS, VWO or IEMG may be a better option? Perhaps I should note that, I'm not looking for a safer option perse, but a better option. I know that S&P500 and Nasdaq have had an outstanding performance the last couple of decades, but will it last?   submitted by   /u/Thoubarnacle [link]   [comments]

    Im looking for an ETF for 30-40 Years. Ive gained some knowledge from the german community and wanna hear out some of you guys aswell. Currently im running the Vanguard all world ETF a1jx52 with a TER of 0,22% at zero additional cost at my broker "scaleable". Since im from germany i choosed one which pays out to get 60k in it (This is the limit my payout gets taxfree in germany called "Sparerpauschbetrag"). Currently im thinking of maybe changing this to the S&P500. The growth was better but it the diversity is less. But a lot of the big american companies are also big in europe. Amazon / Apple etc. What would u recommend? Stick with the World ETF to be save or should i go with the S&P500 have a bit more risk but greater return? ​ Thanks in advance   submitted by   /u/ArtofZed [link]   [comments]

  17. Do ETFs (ex. VOO) out preform the long term Capital Gains Tax of say 20% (Single $40,000/ year bracket) (22/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Someone brought it to my attention that just because I invest into s&p500 etfs doesn’t mean it’s the greatest idea as people say because I have to pay taxes on the dividends and the capital gains tax in case I ever wanted to liquidize my investments for a different investment or whatever else I wanted to purchase. My question is, why is it justifiable to invest into the S&P500 and other etfs that yield an average 15% year to year return when in the end I’m going to be taxed 20% on the gains basically losing 5% more than my original investment. Also bonus question, what are the must know tax information on stocks for year to year taxes if I hold and NOT sell? Thank you ahead of time, I’m 19 and really trying to understand the tax game and want to be as educated as possible on best methods of investments with taxes.   submitted by   /u/Theoutlaw700 [link]   [comments]

Microsoft, Amazon, and Google aren't far behind. The purpose of this post is the look at how much more value the top companies have gained in comparison to to the rest of the market. As of market close today, here's the indices: ​ Index Price 52-week range Highs Lows Off highs Off lows S&P 500 $4,358.69 $3,200.05 - $4,393.68 $4,393.68 $3,200.05 -0.80% 36.21% Nasdaq Composite $14,631.95 $10,217.31 - $14,803.68 $14,803.68 $10,217.31 -1.16% 43.21% Dow Jones Industrial Average $34,798.00 $25,992.28 - $35,091.56 $35,091.56 $25,992.28 -0.84% 33.88% Russell 2000 Index $2,234.04 $1,432.57 - $2,360.17 $2,360.17 $1,432.57 -5.34% 55.95% ​ S&P500, NASDAQ, and Dow are about 1% from its highs while the Russell Index is about 5%. All indices are way off its lows from 52 weeks ago (even more so from the bottom of the 2020 cash). Clearly the indices are doing ok. But what about the stocks in the S&P500? In this next chart, here's the value companies in the S&P500 have made since 52 weeks ago (again, the gains should be much more than this since the 2020 lows). Marketcap valuation gained during the last 52 weeks Top 5 Top 10 Top 20 Top 50 Top 100 Top 250 $ $4.96T $6.49T $7.93T $10.76T $14.15T $18.03T % 23.69% 31.02% 37.87% 51.42% 67.62% 86.14% ​ Bottom 250 Bottom 100 Bottom 50 Bottom 20 Bottom 10 Bottom 5 $ $2.9T $780.77B $340.88B $92.3B $38.79B $13.11B % 13.86% 3.73% 1.63% 0.44% 0.19% 0.06% The total value gained in the S&P500 index since one year ago is $20.93 trillion! The top 5 companies contributed to about 24% of those gains and the top 250 companies contributed to basically all of it (~86%). As of right now, the S&P500 index is now valued at $39.38 trillion, so the S&P500 index has doubled in value since a year ago which is absolutely insane. Let's look at the valuations of these companies. Valuations of companies right now Top 5 Top 10 Top 20 Top 50 Top 100 Top 250 $ $9.08T $12.26T $15.67T $21.89T $27.68T $34.86T % 23.05% 31.13% 39.8% 55.59% 70.29% 88.51% ​ Bottom 250 Bottom 100 Bottom 50 Bottom 20 Bottom 10 Bottom 5 $ $4.52T $1.18T $478.81B $159.71B $73.03B $23.64B % 11.49% 3% 1.22% 0.41% 0.19% 0.06% ​ Top and Bottom Companies off their highs and lows Top 5 Top 10 Top 20 Top 50 Top 100 Top 250 off the highs -2.56% -12.340% -9.13% -6.86% -6.79% -7.42% off the lows 54.50% 54.221% 48.67% 47.09% 53.02% 54.03% ​ Bottom 250 Bottom 100 Bottom 50 Bottom 20 Bottom 10 Bottom 5 off the highs -11.53% -13.56% -14.55% -16.05% -20.23% -19.23% off the lows 65.00% 67.48% 75.81% 67.54% 61.85% 56.65%? Top 10 includes Tesla, which is about 25% off its highs that's why you see the top 10 is -12% off its highs. Besides that, one could say the top 5 companies are carrying the index. The top 250 aren't doing so bad either. After that, the bottom 250 gets a bit ugly. The smaller caps did gain more overall up until their highs before they retreated. Now let's look at how much carrying the top companies are doing. Companies in the S&P500 for every 1-3% move 1% 2% 3% % of the S&P500 $ % $ % $ % AAPL 6.16% $24.26B 0.062% $48.53B 0.12% $72.79B 0.18% MSFT 5.38% $21.19B 0.054% $42.39B 0.11% $63.58B 0.16% AMZN 4.59% $18.08B 0.046% $36.16B 0.09% $54.24B 0.14% GOOG 4.42% $17.42B 0.044% $34.83B 0.09% $52.25B 0.13% FB 2.49% $9.82B 0.025% $19.63B 0.05% $29.45B 0.07% BRK.B 1.62% $6.39B 0.016% $12.77B 0.03% $19.16B 0.05% TSLA 1.60% $6.31B 0.016% $12.63B 0.03% $18.94B 0.05% V 1.32% $5.20B 0.013% $10.39B 0.03% $15.59B 0.04% NVDA 1.23% $4.84B 0.012% $9.67B 0.02% $14.51B 0.04% JPM 1.18% $4.63B 0.012% $9.25B 0.02% $13.88B 0.04% JNJ 1.13% $4.46B 0.011% $8.93B 0.02% $13.39B 0.03% WMT 1.00% $3.96B 0.010% $7.91B 0.02% $11.87B 0.03% UNH 0.99% $3.91B 0.010% $7.83B 0.02% $11.74B 0.03% MA 0.96% $3.77B 0.010% $7.53B 0.02% $11.30B 0.03% PYPL 0.90% $3.54B 0.009% $7.09B 0.02% $10.63B 0.03% HD 0.88% $3.47B 0.009% $6.94B 0.02% $10.41B 0.03% PG 0.87% $3.41B 0.009% $6.82B 0.02% $10.22B 0.03% BAC 0.84% $3.30B 0.008% $6.59B 0.02% $9.89B 0.03% DIS 0.82% $3.21B 0.008% $6.43B 0.02% $9.64B 0.02% ADBE 0.74% $2.92B 0.007% $5.83B 0.01% $8.75B 0.02%? Every 1% move Apple makes as of now, ~$24 is moved and the S&P500 index moved ~0.06%. A 3% move would impact $72 billion dollars in valuation and has a 0.18% impact on the index. Doesn't seem much but the index is valued at almost $40 trillion dollars. Look at how much of an impact these stocks together make. ​ 1% move 2% move 3% move Top 5 0.23% 0.46% 0.69% Top 10 0.3% 0.6% 0.9% Top 20 0.391% 0.78% 1.17% The top 20 companies can make a 1%+ move if they averaged a 3% increase/decrease. So what should I get out of this? The S&P500 is top heavy - 23% of its valuation comes from the top 5 companies. 55% of its valuation from the top 50 companies. Almost 90% from the top 250 companies. S&P500 adds and removes companies all the time. If a company is performing poorly and finds a company that is doing well over the past few quarters, it will consider swapping them. Valuations in these companies don't reflect what's going on the economy. All indices are near record highs yet there's a lot going on in the economy (unemployment, inflation, real estate, etc.) that at any moment could create FUD. Stock picking isn't easy. It's a lot more difficult to find the losers than to pick the winners. Make sure you have a strategy. Reddit is known for choosing small caps. If you're going to invest in small caps, don't let emotion get to you. They usually see wild swings 10-20% days up and down. Hopefully some insight what the overall market looks like. Large caps are carrying the market, we're at all-time highs, and earnings are coming up. Expect some profit taking next week and the weeks after during earnings season. Hope ya'll find this useful. Good luck to all.   submitted by   /u/reggiebergst [link]   [comments]

  21. Complete newbie but want to look at long term investing. (05/08/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hello, I am a 19-year-old who is now a sophomore at college. I hear about stocks and about day trading, but I don't think I would be able to divert all of my attention on stocks, and want to generally invest and return a decent profit without all of my attention is on stocks. I heard that ETF's/index funds are generally a safe bet but I don't know if I'm supposed to invest entirely in those or if I should invest split with individual stocks. I invested a little in S&P500 and S&P500 global as well as some big-name stocks like tesla and amazon but I was wondering when I should switch, and how to do fundamental analysis. I heard that people switch their portfolios from time to time and I wanted to know what criteria were not being met for people to swap or to stay. Although I don't have a lot of time in the future as I plan on working and spending less attention on stocks, I have a lot of time to study and learn about the market so any recommendations about books, videos, etc. about long term investing are welcome   submitted by   /u/br0kenmyth [link]   [comments]

  25. Why Your Looking at The Wrong Numbers When Referencing S&P500 Yearly Gains. (26/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    To summarize since most people won't read this whole thing: Most investment firms, news and posts are using a number to calculate S&P500 yearly gains that does not accurately represent whether the S&P500 had a good year or not. This number is only useful for headlines and an incredibly minute number of people. It appears great on paper but this number is then re-posted all around the net spreading bad faith statistics. The Problem Alright now into the explanation. Most blogs/news/posts reference the yearly difference from the first day of the year to the last day of the year and put it in their headlines. For example, here is CNBC and USAToday claiming the gains for the s&p500 in 2020 was 16.23-16.3%. This makes sense at a surface statistic but once you put it into real situations you realize why it's an almost useless figure. The overwhelming majority of investors ARE NOT buying on the first day of the year and cashing out on the last day. This means the figure being tossed around in the headlines is essentially ignoring the other ~252 trading days of that year. Figure 1 & 2 display two theoretical movements in 2020 with the same starting price and ending price. The media would be reporting the same headline figure of 'S&P500 has 16% growth in 2020'. You can see how this headline year to date figure ignores the actual health and movement of the S&P500. Especially if the final few days in 2020 are a spike like this theoretical graph. Since the timing of the average person’s trades are nowhere near this, the publicized statistics on whether the S&P500 had a good year or not does not actually reflect if it had a good year or not. If you held the S&P500 for exactly a year but the sell date was any different your gains are going to be completely different. Exploring More The one thing all these news organizations highlight is the concept of a year gap between the end date and starting date (253 trading days is what I'm considering a year). This is a really ignored concept that should be explored more. If you have the end date on any other day in 2020 and minus 253 trading days, you are probably going to see a large difference. Let’s look at four examples in this graph. • Holding from Jan 3, 2019 - Jan 6, 2020 (253 Trading Day Difference) = +32.53% • Mar 21, 2019 – Mar 23, 2020 = -21.7% • Oct 30, 2019 – Oct 30, 2020 = +7.37% • Dec 4, 2019 – Dec 4, 2020 = +18.75% Since the common denominator is this exact yearlong hold we should be extending this to calculate averages for the entire year as a whole instead of one single instance out of ~253 possible instances. The Solution So figure 4 demonstrates 4 examples of holding for exactly a year and selling in 2020. To calculate an average, you need to find all ~253 examples. If you do this, you get a calculation which is best represented by the phrase ‘Average S&P500 Returns In 2020 After Holding For A Year’. It’s a mouthful but a much more accurate representation to the health and movement of the S&P500 on a comparison to a year ago (another phrase is "Average S&P500 Yearly Gains in 2020"). Here is a distribution of all of those 253 examples. I’ve taken the liberty to skim off the bottom (lowest) 12 instances and top (highest) 12 instances (roughly 9.5%) to get rid of any massive single day outliers. This doesn’t affect the calculations that much but paints a more accurate picture. The average for 2020 is +10.97% (without the skim it’s 10.58%). You can see in Figure 5 that there is a lot of instances in the 14.6%-16.6% range but in total 71.6% of instances have an increase less than 16.2%. That’s quite a large chance to be lower than the number being paraded. I also did the math since 2016. • 2016 average of +1.65% • 2017 average of +16.97% • 2018 average of +12.92% • 2019 average of +5.78% • Combining the years 2016-2020 with a skim of 50 on each end has an average of 9.74% Let’s compare these to Yearly S&P500 change since 2016 Year Published Numbers My Calculations 2016 9.54% 1.65% 2017 19.42% 16.97% 2018 -6.24% 12.92% 2019 28.88% 5.78% 2020 16.26% 10.97% What I find most interesting is that the published numbers almost always completely miss what’s actually happening in that year (2017 being sort of close). In 2018 if you don’t skim any numbers there is only 8 days out of 251 trading days that had -6.24% or less. To put that into perspective the entire year is being summarized by something that only happened 3.2% of the time. Make it make sense. TL;DR/Summary The media and investment firms are using the ‘Year to Date’ to interpret whether the S&P500 had a good year or not. This figure is then spread like wildfire on the internet as the god send statistic. While it is a real statistic it is being used in incredibly bad faith and does not actually represent whether the S&P500 had a good year or not. For example this displays two theoretical movements in 2020 with the same starting price and ending price. Both would be paraded as being good years because of the 16% increase. This one instance of a yearlong gap makes up just 1 out of ~253 instances of the year. To calculate a more accurate statistic you need to average every year long gap for all trading days that year. In 2020 this equals 10.97% not the paraded 16.26%. The most notable difference is the published S&P500 YTD 2018 example above. Disclaimers Full disclosure I chose WallStreetJournals S&P500 Index Close data seen Here. One could take the opening price instead, but I chose the closing price. An extremely important concept is holding for exactly 253 trading days, that's what my math takes into account. Not a single day more or less. So if you hold for 255 days the percentages will be different. This concept can of course be applied to any stock/etf, I only focused this post on the S&P500 so that majority of people are familiar with it.   submitted by   /u/guanciallee [link]   [comments]

  27. 3 Month Sector Analysis vs. S&P 500: Best and Worst Sectors (06/08/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hey everybody, I love collecting data and decided to record a 3 month performance analysis for the 11 main sectors, and thought I'd share my analysis for everyone else. I don't expect to surprise anyone with my findings, however, I thought some of you could benefit from this knowledge. Best Performing Sectors (3mo delta vs. S&P500): Information Technology (6.52%) Real Estate (3.94%) Healthcare (2.69%) Worst Performing Sectors (3mo delta vs. S&P500): Energy (-12.43%) Materials (-10.28%) Tie between Financials (-6.59%) and Industrials (-6.58%) Debrief: IT continues to boom with the lingering COVID-19 still aiding to reliance on computers for human interaction and entertainment. Semiconductors fuel the fire as AMD and NVDA lead the charge with 51% and 41% 3 month growth respectively, and software companies such as ADBE round out the sector's sizeable advantage over other sectors. Real Estate has shown consistent positive return as the rebound from the pandemic is continuing to produce gains over other sectors. Finally, Healthcare continues to benefit from the vaccine rollouts and pharma/medtech support, with heavy hitter MRNA (141%) having the highest return in the S&P 500 over the last three months, and second-place (in the sector) PKI contributing with a healthy 46% return. As per the worst sectors, Energy has dove off hard after performing impressively in the first half of the year with the primarily oil-driven sector seeing falling prices for the commodity; major player VLO (-18%) is amongst the 2% worst performing stocks in the S&P500. Likewise, Materials follow close behind as commodity prices that soared earlier in the year has seemed to worn off in recent times, with agricultural chemicals being the worst industry for the sector. Industrials tie for third worst — with industry leader CAT down 13% in the 3 month timespan — with Financials also struggling compared against the index. Primary data is collected from SPDR, Vanguard, and iShare Sector ETF data compared against the S&P500 index. Supplementary data taken from barchart.com and news research from various credible outlets.   submitted by   /u/mobi_the_one [link]   [comments]

  31. How worried are you about the current volatility across the market? Btw it's my fault for the crash. (13/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I've chased meme stocks this year and had some great success, which was then evaportated by chasing more meme stocks and turned into a loss. As a result, on Friday, I went safe. I split my entire potfolio across "safe" long term S&P500 etf's, along with high dividend low volatility and FTSE ETF's also. I threw in a bit to things like Microsoft, Google and Berkshire aswell. Because I did this on Friday, the market has taken a dump all week, so I'm sorry for that guys. I know this is a long term play, and I shouldnt be worried about the market taking a dump 3 days into my investment, but for the long term outlook, how are you guys thinking about the next 3-12 months? I know etf's should be held for years, but nobody can predict what will happen in 2028 so i'm just curious about people's feelings for the rest of this year. Is this just a blip or the start of a huge plummet?   submitted by   /u/_MelvinCapital [link]   [comments]

  33. Should I invest in S&P 500 or MSCI World index fund ? (24/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Hello everyone, based on my question, you will notice that I am new to investing. After having a few winners in 2020, I got tired of trying to pick stocks and want to move into a more defensive position: exchange traded index fund (ETFs). I am trying to figure out if a monthly investment of $300 over the next 20+ years is better in MSCI World (60% USA, 12% Europe, 7% Japan etc.) or in S&P 500 (100% US). Why I am hesitating? Of course I want higher returns and historically the S&P500 has been better than the overall world market (if my research on the topic is correct). Also, USA has around 60% weight in the MSCI World and the top 10 holdings in MSCI World are also the top 10 companies in the S&P500 index (except Nestle, which is Swiss). Basically the US is the driving force here. Therefore I was thinking, why not invest 100% in the US instead of only 60%. I understand that this question implies another question, which is "Do you think that the US economy and the US stock market will continue to yield high returns on the long term?". Difficult question to answer. However, I'd be happy to hear your opinions or recommendations on which strategy is the best for long-term investing. P.S. I know Michael Burry hates ETFs, because he thinks that they are, quote: "draining brains". People are giving up on doing their own DDs for single stocks and rely only on the overall market passively.

  35. Hedging portfolio with this instrument: LU0832435464 is it viable, what are the hidden risks, am I missing something. (29/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi all, first post here I hope I can get some solid advice. I am 33, european investor on DeGiro, started investing in 2017 and built a portfolio of around 40k. Position are mainly in tech stock, S&P500 and other broad ETF. I have a general exposure to the market and I would like to cover myself with some hedging. I do not want to use stop loss or similar strategies as I want full control over my actions. I found this product: Lyxor S&P 500 VIX Futures Enhanced Roll UCITS ETF - Acc https://www.lyxoretf.es/es/retail/products/alternatives/lyxor-sp-500-vix-futures-enhanced-roll-ucits-etf-acc/lu0832435464/eur to my understanding this ETF tracks S&P 500 VIX Futures and it seems that it goes up when volatility is high and down when volatility is low. It was around 50 euros back in 2012 and it steadily went down to 3/4 euros as of now in 2021, and it spiked to 12 euros in march during the drop in the market. In the same period my S&P500 ETF went from around 100 to 400. So when the market did 3/4X, the VIX ETF did -90%. My idea(and the advice I am requesting) is: can I expect a similar pattern in a future crash/bear market? What are the risk I may not see? How does this VIX Futures trackers really works? I read some pages on the CBOE website but I really did not get what does it do and how it works, I only understand that the pattern seems to be the exact opposite of the market. Since I have some cash aside, I wanted to invest something(maybe around 1000Euros) on this ETF. When a crash and a bear market eventually come, my portfolio could drop significantly(let's say 40%or around 15k) and these 1000 could do anything from 5x to 15x. In this way i would not see a big loss on paper. Furthermore, I could sell the VIX ETF and increase my position in the S&P500 buying at a discount to lower the average withouth using additional cash(setting some money apart to pay taxes on the gains from the sale of VIX ETF). I am asking for advice for 2 reasons: 1 - I do not really understand how volatility and the VIX Futures benchmark works 2 - I follow a long term cost average strategy, I have never sold and will not sell in a long time(I am building a portfolio for my retirement and I know I cannot time the market). If I buy just to hedge my portfolio I will not sell, only limit my loss on paper during the volatility period. However, if I sell when the VIX ETF is high I would have to somehow time the market, and this is something I am not yet comfortable with. So I am asking for any advice or clarification on my situation, any tip is appreciated as I do not have any close person to ask advice to, only you guys from the internet. Thanks in advance for your replies! TLDR: Position of 40k in broad market ETF and tech stocks. Looking to hedge my portfolio with Lyxor S&P 500 VIX Futures Enhanced Roll UCITS ETF - Acc but not sure how it works and how it relates to the S&P500. Further doubts on whether to buy and hold or buy and time a sale when the rest of my portfolio drops 20 to 40 percent in the next crash/bear market.   submitted by   /u/losforesteros [link]   [comments]
