    Which ETF to hedge against BBOZ?

    Hi all, First question here - If my thoughts are that the ASX will decline over the next 6 months or more and have moved in to BBOZ (geared bear fund). What suitable ETF would be good to mitigate some of that risk. A standard A200 or VAS or something else and what ratio should I consider...

    Both AFI and VAS? Or just one of them?

    Hi! I'm trying to get the bulk of my savings doing something and putting 25% of my portfolio into 'Australia'. At this point I have decided a 50% 50% split between AFI and VAS to get the benefits of low level management and the long-term safety of an index. To me, that logic seems okay, but...
