Re: Buying ETF's in Euro to create Ray Dalios Allweather fund allocation

View Post
Hi Fellow Europeans,

I'm trying to build the Ray Dalio Allweather fund on Degiro and as you probably know the ETF's recommended in american literature has some other variation in europe.

This is the recommended allocation. What would be a good European version of this that can preferably be made on Degiro? Maybe InteractiveBroker.

Also in regards to the new limitation of Europeans buying american ETFs. Do we have some EU version so we won't experience not being able to buy the ETF anymore as regulations tighten?

- So far 30% S&P500 should be an ok alternative to the 30% VTI.

- I'm located in Switzerland if it helps.

30% Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI) +7.21% YTD

40% iShares 20+ Year Treasury ETF (TLT) +15.96% YTD

15% iShares 7-10 Year Treasury ETF (IEF) +7.26% YTD

7.50% SPDR Gold Shares ETF (GLD) +25.71% YTD

7.50% PowerShares DB Commodity Index Tracking Fund (DBC) +9.81% YTD

Year-to-date total return through 9/26/16: +12.30%

So far this is my suggestion, please let me know if these are bad ETF's:

30% VANGUARD S&P500 $ IE00B3XXRP09
(0.07% p.a.Total expense ratio)

40% iShares USD Treasury Bond 20+yr UCITS ETF (Dist) $ IE00BSKRJZ44
(0.07% p.a.Total expense ratio)

15% BlackRock iShares USD Treasury Bond 7-10yr UCITS ETF (BlackRock Asset Management Ireland Limited) IE00B1FZS798
(0.07% p.a.Total expense ratio)

Can't find any for the last two.

Why are these naming conventions so convoluted and confusing? Makes me crazy trying to figure out what the hell i'm buying here.
Where are you taking these YTD figures from? Either out of thin air or you have no understanding of what YTD means...

As an example: how is YTD return for VTI +7.21%, when 3/26 close was 131.11 and 12/31 adj. close was 162.81?
