    Not sure if these two posts will apply to you, they're more geared towards British investors:

    http://monevator.com/low-cost-index-trackers/

    http://monevator.com/etfs-vs-index-funds-differences/

    The second post explains the difference between ETF's and index funds.

    Where in EU are you located?

    Thanks a lot for the links! Sorry I didn't notice your question till now, but I live in Denmark. Which also makes it a bit harder with all the information on the Internet, as the advice isn't always applicable to me. I'll make sure to look into the low cost index trackers you posted, though!

    Don't follow SLV, but GLD is nowhere.

    It's been wallowing for a few years now, and I don't see a compelling case for it to make a significant move upward. It might trend, but what is your goal? If it's not to park the money, then I'd look elsewhere. PALL looks a more interesting investment if you want exposure to metals.

    I own it. Up 11% so far. It has a typical risk profile of speculative biotech. Could win big, could be back at $2. It's down today, so you can get it at a discount.

    HALO is another one you might want to check out.

    Check out HIMX... Down from 8 to 6.80 in 2 days. Strong financials attractive valuation good growth. The only news I'm currently aware of is 2 analyst downgrades.

    Just bought into HIMX and came here to post about it (bought just under 7)
    And double down on MU (at 27.5)
    Yesterday opened a position on RDS.A too.


    BAD just jumped 14-15%, for no reason I know of. Still not really worth much at least in my portfolio but it's quite a jump

    Looking at the market index, looks like interest rate hike is a go. My portfolio went from -1% to +1% within minutes of the Fed's announcement.
