(Spamming here, god I hope I have the right forum and I'm not spamming the same one twice :S)HiI have been poking around and looking at ETF's, I'm looking for a plug and play portfolio. I.e pick 3-5 Etf's, hold them indefinitely while rebalancing annually.Now this would make up the portion of my investments that could be considered my high risk part.My Idea's are as follows30% allocation to VWO (Vanguard Emerging Markets)30% Allocation to DSV (SPDR DJ Wilshire Small Cap Value)But now I have 60% left over, and a lot of options... And not helping matters is I'm not 100% on DSV. Anyone who is more familiar with ETF's have any idea's?I would love to see small/mid cap etf's in each part of the world, or failing that etf's that cover North America, Europe, Asia, South America etc. i.e investing in 3-5 strong etf's that cover most of the world? allowing for my risk/high growth portion to also double as my international. I have ultra low networth, making the diversification that ETF's offer a very logical path. Also my retirement date is 30 years out minimum allowing me to ride out a lot of problems and my risk tolerance is extremely high, but picking one or two stocks to do well where i could diversify with etf's seems a little foolhardy...
Well, I think I might be looking for an ETF for China, or at least for Asian markets. Lawd knows I don't have the time or patience to research individual issues, but I wouldn't mind having greater exposure to those countries.(I do have some exposure outside the US, but it's mostly through US corporations that have significant presence overseas, like McDonalds, Coke, Campbells, etc.)Just toying with it for the moment, but I'm leaning to picking up a slice in that area.
Having a heck of time trying to decipher if your being serious or not lolSorry :P
