Hi nzkiwi100,

Thanks for picking up our book and for your interest in the Fool! The 2,2,3,4,5 method refers to the Beating the Dow approach that we originally discussed in The Motley Fool Investment Guide. A few years back we stopped officially following the BTD approach based on some research we did that suggested the returns might not be as good as O'Higgins originally thought.

Personally, I still believe the BTD approach is a safe and good one, but that's just one Fool's opinion. If you're to follow it, it only applies to the Dow-30 stocks, so you'd have to buy US securities. Unfortunately, I'm no expert on how someone in a foreign country buys US securities. You might call one of the local stock brokers and ask how it's done. Try a discount broker first if you have access to one.
