We were meant to be in Sweden now - visiting good friends in Stockholm aged in their 70s, as are we.
There's no need to repeat the current Nordic stats here other than to say that Sweden, with roughly twice the population of its neighbours, has a hugely greater death rate per capita. Yes, they...
Any thoughts on what is happening with BGA please? I've held for a month or so and have done well, but the last several days have seen downward movement on the back of no announcements. Thoughts appreciated.
Tough times aren't they? I decided we had too much in the market and too little in cash - So reduced my positions in a number of stocks early last week and the week before. Including ARG :)
Didn't have many VGS and VAS and only acquired them last year - and have held them, albeit...
OK. I called Commsec back. I haven't bought an ETF before. It seems my order is active but does not show as ii is in the warrant exchange market - the AXW. If my order price gets into the top 5 prices then I gather [I think] that it will show.
Or something along those lines :)
Don't know DocK. There are 3 orders showing for VAS that are well below the price I have set. And these are very small orders as well - between 5 and 24 shares. And yet mine, for a much greater quantity, does not show and Commsec have not yet called me back.
I ended up phoning CommSec who are looking into my query. I cancelled the order and the opened another, which still does not show. My account is up to date and I haven’t experienced this before.
CommSec said they’d phone me back once it’s resolved.
No big deal, just unusual.
I put in a buy order for VAS last evening. My order shows as In Market but does not show on the VAS buy/sell page where there are only 5 buyers. My buy order is at a lower price.
Is this something peculiar to ETFs? The order is not being “processed” but is active.
Thanks Bill, Belli and sptrawler for your collective wisdom.
VAS, VGS and VHY are ETFs I knew a little of, but have researched a little further today.
This I think would make some welcome diversity in our portfolio.
I've just come back to check this thread for the first time in some weeks. I did not anticipate that it would have lasted as long as it has.
There has been some very interesting discussion which I have appreciated.
In particular I remain interested in the LIC / ETF discussion.
May I ask, from...
