We plan to update the hypothetical “Perfect Portfolio” every quarter to show exactly how you can utilize what I believe is a very conservative, but profitable approach to markets. We're using four, very liquid and well known ETF's that I believe are going to be very important in the investment world for the next three years.
The results of the “Perfect Portfolio” for Q4 were as follows: The ETF GLD that tracks gold bullion managed to gain 8.55% for the quarter. Our next ETF, FXE which tracks the Euro, suffered a small loss of 2.9% for the quarter. The star performer for the quarter was USO, which tracks crude oil. This market had a positive return of 8.63%. Our last ETF is SPY, which tracks the S&P 500, and this market put in a very respectable 5.63% return at the end of December.
The average return for the “Perfect Portfolio” for the quarter was 5.13%. This was lower than some other quarters simply because the markets were less volatile. In the future we expect this portfolio to continue to do well and we will be reporting on this blog on a quarterly basis with the results.
