Europe a buy at YEY of 0.20, SPY a sell at YEY of 0.10

Re: Current PE Ratio's of ETF's

This is what I get using M*.
The (P/E) ratio of a fund is the weighted average of the price/earnings ratios of the stocks in a fund's portfolio.

Re: Current PE Ratio's of ETF's

This data looks odd. PE of IJJ is not 74.90.

I would agree, but there must be some relative relationship to consider. Don't think its just a temporary error, the data is available on FIDO's ATP. Any ideas?

Re: Bear Catchers Combined

90% of 42 equity ETFs hitting new highs within the last 3 months is completely consistent with a bullish BCC combined state.

I'm missing something if there's something unusual/unexpected about that?

Re: Bear Catchers Combined

This year is different?

I made up a list of 42 equity and Fixed Income ETF's and counted the 52 Hi Date by month. Looks unusual at least not what is expected to be. That could send out some red flags when following any model based on history [more]

Re: Diversification- too much??

Good Stuff.

I would probably select Portfolio 5 over 1 or 3, which is about where I am now.
