Step by step

Question

Once you have decided on your investing philosophy (the hardest part) and you are actually ready to put your money where your reading is...I was hoping the actual execution aspect would be simple, but for this first timer, it’s not - I feel like I’m learning to read again..

I want to invest 100k in the S&P 500 from Australia and forget about it for 20 years. What is the best actual step by step process to do this?

Thank you

Personally, I would put my money in gradually rather than all at once.  If you put all of it in right now and the market keeps falling (which it looks like it will), it will feel a lot worse than if you drip feed money in say every month.  You don't feel the pain so badly that way.

The S&P 500 itself is a leveraged derivative product with all the long term costs that involves. It sounds like you are wanting to invest for the long term in which case a basket of stocks of companies that make up the S&P would be more likely what you would be looking for. So buying actual shares to hang on to rather than just CFDs of the S&P itself?

. Also if you can get ETF’s

Right ...

You don't really want to be investing in a basket of stocks manually when you can just buy an ETF that does it for you.

ETFs are the way, the road and the truth ...

Dividends - worthwhile if you have a huge amount of cash

    • Hi    when I try to buy the tickers SDIV and KBWD the platform does not allow me. This is strange as I have a broker account in France where I can easily buy these products. the MIFID retail legislation is related to CFD and margin, hence the reason must be different, can anybody help me?   Thanks
