Hey guys so I wanted ETF'S as part of my portfolio and was doing some research and found this one https://personal.vanguard.com/us/funds/snapshot?FundIntExt=INT&FundId=0986#tab=0

Though when is the right time? Is the right time to buy any security is when its cheap? Because for stocks for example they say buy below the intrinsic value, that makes sense. But what about ETF'S? I know I can use the NAV to find if its undervalued or overvalued but I don't know how accurate this method is, what should I consider when buying an etf?

Keeping it nice and simple, i have made a 1 year comparison chart for VAS and POU (British pound ETF)

Which one looks cheap?
