ETFalpha has been designed to get results, be very cost-effective, let you keep control of all your money, be simple to operate, and, equally important, save you time!
If you just want to manage your portfolio with ETFalpha, you will find the month’s instructions at the very top of our newsletter, which is called The Update.
You then just log into your online stockbroker and do the transaction/s.
From start to finish, this process will not take you more than 20 minutes.
On certain months, depending on market activity, there will be no transactions. You either continue holding the ETFs you already own, or just keep stay away from the market.
To give you an idea, during the whole of 2013*, we bought or sold only 8 ETFs.
If there are no transactions for the month, the time you have to put in is just the time you need to have a look at our newsletter in your email inbox, which is next to nothing.
The newsletter also contains a Commentary by our Editor about the main forces moving the markets and his interpretation of global political, economic and financial news.
Your transactions, if any, are not tied to the Commentary, and you may disregard the Commentary completely, although most of our subscriber’s enjoy our editor's fresh take on the markets.
During the rest of the month…..forget your portfolio and go about your normal business and leisure….
Very rarely, when there are huge market movements, you may get The Update during the month for some emergency action.
* The name of the service during 2013 was ETF-Online-Investing.com.
