I am from Italy and relatively new to rotational portfolios. I traded on futures in the past but not much on ETF.
I realized QT is mainly showing portfolios based on US ETF symbols which now are almost impossible to be traded in Italy (and other EU countries if I am not wrong?).
I was wondering if other European users found a straight solution or any smart workaround?
I assume (correct?) there are no perfect EU ETFs corresponding to every US ETF …
Any of you made a comp table or anything?02/11/2020 at 2:39 am #77615lbboParticipant
Found this later… Sorry.
Any news since this post?
Anybody conferted the ini file and standard portfolios with EU ETFs?02/11/2020 at 4:55 am #77618VangelisKeymaster
No updates really although some clients have created their own strategy versions. The way we have solved this is 1. Got professional status so we can trade US ETFs. 2. We trade VIX futures and options, a strategy that we may soon open to investors via a managed IB account.02/11/2020 at 5:27 am #77632Frank1 GrossmannKeymaster
If you traded Futures, then you can for example trade our Enhanced Permanent Portfolio strategy
You just have to replace SPY by ES Futures, TLT by ZB Futures and GLD by GC Futures02/29/2020 at 2:13 am #77811InvestParticipant
You guy’s really planning managed accounts with Vix futures and options,that is amazing for investors with little or no experience in trading this product’s with its specific characteristics and want exposure to it and not able to trade the ETFs anymore without professional status or an offshore vehicle for example.
When we can expect the launch?02/29/2020 at 6:04 am #77813
I mostly use ETF’s on the London Stock Exchange as alternatives
For example. PHAU instead of GLD. SMTC instead of GSY.02/29/2020 at 10:49 am #77820Richard ThomasParticipant
If you search for PHAU on the link you posted, it is not found. Is that the correct symbol. Also what would you use as an equivalent for TLT and SPY?02/29/2020 at 12:15 pm #77823
Yes it’s correct you can find it under ETP’s
As for TLT there are several treasurybonds products, VDTA seems like a good proxy for TLT
I like these instruments better than the usual eurozone ETF’s because cheaper, lower spreads and USD currency, same as the base currency of my Interactive Brokers account.02/29/2020 at 12:24 pm #77824
Ah the link shared by Ibbo also mentions LSE ETF’s
SPY > CSSPX ISHARES CORE S&P 500
TLT > IDTL ISHARES USD TRES 20PLUS YR
PCY > IEMB ISHARES JPM USD EM BND USD D
JNK > IHYU ISHARES USD HY CORP USD DIST
TIP > IDTP ISHARES USD TIPS
AGG > IUAG ISHARES US AGG BND USD DIST
GLD > IGLN ISHARES PHYSICAL GOLD
