Companies do good and bad and if you hold a lot of them together in a basket they tend to do the same thing. Either all up up or down. Buy the basket!

VFV - s&p 500 index ETF(denominated in CAD)

VCN - FTSE Canada All Cap Index ETF

When you buy the S&P, you are buying ownership in the companies that make the things that americans buy every day.

Across wars, political strife - whatever - it keeps on earning. Look at the graph.

Buying the S&P500 gives you a passive income stream for the rest of your life. It's not "risky" if you hold for a period of at least 10 years.

This is so simple and straightforward, yet, no one knows it.

Buy $10,000 worth of the S&P500 and you'll earn $700 per year, on average, FOR FREE.

Your graph understates the effect that the Great Depression had, the effect is more than likely going to repeat at some point.

yeah, that's ofcourse insane generalization based on 100 years avg lel.

in fact, 0-9% annual return is quite unlikely and %10-25% or -5-15% for example are much more likely real annual returns for a single year.

the real reason why indexing beats stock picking is pure math. sp500 performance is due to 5% of the top stocks past 50 years. if you take out 80% outside the top stocks you would have had a clear negative return. so if you dont buy the wide enough you have simply worse odds at markets than you would ever imagine

Total Stock Market Index has basically superceded the S&P 500 so get that instead.

Seems like it's not that good, and got outperformed by just the s&p

That sounds too complicated

Why are you listening to advice from a poorfag NEET poser? If this guy could truly beat the market, he'd be paid millions by any trading firm.

Stop being gullible.

I'm not taking his advice I just want to hear what he has to say to get both perspectives and be able to form a better view

Then go ask the homeless guy on the corner too. Because his advice is likely to be better than the fag you've been ass kissing in this thread.

You're not giving your money to a money manager, but you're buying shares of a fund managed by Vanguard.

Kek. Tell us all that Vanguard does to manage an index fund. Other than ... I don't know ... track the index.

Impress me, master trader.

since you're so smart, explain how to track an index efficiently

Ignoramus

Depends on how much tracking error you're willing to accept versus trying to save on trading expenses. Since you didn't define "efficiency" you're question can't be answered.

I suggest spending some time on Google learning how index funds work before trying to act like a smartass.

Faggot.
