  1. I'm already getting the 'itch' to go back into live trading, but I won't do it!

    After the U.S. election results I might start putting £500 a month into the S&P 500 ETF tracker again though.  After all the S&P 500 only ever goes up 😘

     

  2. I closed my position (even although I'm trading in demo), because it's not ideal to keep a spot contract open for that long.  Since I'm bullish I should probably open a future instead.  (An option might be the best 'option' haha)

    Here we go, it's consolidating at 50% and the tedious moving averages are lining up into the proper order (price > 20 SMA > 50 SMA > 200 SMA)

  3. Here's the value of the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF tracker at the start of February and most recent price:

    Here's the SPDR  S&P U.S. Dividend Aristocrats by comparison

    The SPDR index has an annual yield of 2.53% and a five-year annualized return of 12.19%

    The Vanguard index has an annual yield of 1.47% and a five-year annualized return of 16.39%

     

    So my question is, why would anybody choose the Dividend Aristocrat index over the S&P 500 index?
