The Eurostoxx 50 and the S&P 500 have historically been fairly correlated. However, since 2009/2010 we clearly see them splitting, as Europe is rather stable and the US presents amazing returns.
Index fund investing as a simple strategy is more complex than what John C. Bogle says. There are too many options to choose from. For investing in Europe I am confident that ishares is the best, do you have any other suggestion?
Naturally many other factors have to be taken into account when deciding what to do in terms of investment, in particular which index funds to buy. But, as we know, there is no point in thinking too much about an investment strategy; even financial experts rarely beat the market. So, would you say there will be a crash soon in the US? Shall we invest in the EuroStoxx? Let me know your views!
