Thanks for all the replies. So much food for thought.
I did buy the VAGP bond but just the one share so nothing too outrageous. Just feels reassuring having something at a 3/7 risk rather than my other ETF’s at a 5. The return won’t be exciting but I’ll continue to top it up each month.
At the beginning at this wild journey I was thinking “CFD silver and away I go” that was a whole area I’m not heading back to anytime soon so I’m looking at 10/15 years now. So I guess that’s a decent amount of time to up my stock % and lower my bond %
Question - what other all world ETF’s would I need if I hold what I do now?
Yes been waiting for VJPN to drop a little but I guess it all balances out eventually.
I hold quite a few single stocks, like everyone else it’s a mine field knowing weather to hold or sell or what to do. I don’t want to be the one in 1/2/3 years time saying “Hindsight” I trust in them and hope for good things. I don’t have a gold ETF I’m backing GGP, another wonderful volatile joinery.
Yes @Dao that was my thinking entirely, this way yes I pay slightly more in the long run (TBH it’s never going to be an amount that makes my eyes water ) but (when PIE is fully up and running) I can self balance my ETF’s out with auto instalments and be in control of where I put my money monthly rather than go all in one huge world ETF and everything’s allocated in one. Feels like a more optimistic approach. May not be the most savvy way.
@phildawson GGP and PHE
Once again thanks for all the replies - I’m officially but in a good way.
Think it’s ETF’s for the keep and those cheap stocks for the
