Welcome to the ASX50 Foolish Four RP Method. This is a trial run to see how
it stacks up as a mechanical method for investing on the ASX. 

I started this one as of 26/6/2000. The 4 stocks I picked was 2-5 in RP order
excluding Resourses and Property Trusts. The order for the end Friday 24/6
was from 1st to 5th was PDP, GMF, QAN, CSR & AMC. Since PDP had the lowest
price and highest yield I dropped it according to TMF. The order for end Friday
1/9 is as below. The left hand column includes resources and Property Trusts.

ETRADE charges $29.95 commission + Tax unless you are a frequent trader then
it is $19.95. I added $30 per trade.

For the month of August this ASX50 FF hit a high of 10% before coming down to
5.71%. It is just in front of the All Ords which has risen 5.32% since 26/6.
The figures below is from end of trading 1/9/2000. 

Happy Investing
