Hello people,
I'm to this forum but not to topix - does anyone here know a little about investment tools in general and ETFs in particular?
Recent news show some very positive macro-economics signs related to the UK (PMI polls, industrial output).
I was wondering what is the best way |(in my opinion an ETF would be the right choice) to create a long position on UK stock market - not just just FTSE
Thanks
If you know a better forum for these kind of matters will be happy to know

How to go long on Markets. Simply observe the party in power.{R right wing} Play Bear ,{D left wing} Play Bull simple as that.
A mathematical investigation was produced by the statisticians Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov that exposes the superior performance of the stock markets under democrats. That this is but one example of the democrat’s superiority, as there are more.
Their study encompasses 80 years. Study demonstrates systematically and positively surprised by democratic policies. Comparing the stewardship of the two parties. They calculated each economic indicator as an “annual average” during the democrats and republicans of their economic stewardship of their 40 years each. Turns out to be a landslide for democrats providing beneficial returns to the nation. One example; Democrat’s presided over a very respectable average annual compound return of 9.60% during their 40 years where in as republicans averaged a dismal 0.58%.
Consider this; a 401K plan invested in stocks and had a value of $100,000 at the beginning of the 40 years. Democrats would accumulate in compound interest $ 3,912,210 where in as republicans would only produce $126,027 . Another example; “IF” an employee were to invest $5,000 per year into their 401K for 40 years in a democratic stewardship the employee would have $1,985,526 in the bank. Where as the republican would produce a dismal $224,375.
That republicans advocate that they are good for businesses is false as compared to the democrats
Another interesting fact emerges within the statistical study. The income gap between the 99% and the top 1% has widened considerably under republicans. Averaging .49% as compared to the democrat’s .41% That is to say under republicans the income gap in 40 years, widened by 19.6% and narrowed 16.4%. Resulting in a 36% difference.
LOL on debt republicans increased debt by 2.5 times greater than that of the democrats. Republicans $7.1 Trillion vs. the democrats $2.8 Trillion.
GOP’s Self-Proclamation for economic dominance; in fact it is a misnomer to call the GOP a fiscal responsible party and or a smaller government, when in fact the contrary is true.
Obama’s administration indicates he sought the great leaders on these issue. Eccles and FDR, Clinton and O’Neill to do what is most productive for our nation.
Now pass on this one small example of the fallacies of the republican’s erroneous policies and deceptions..

ETF companies will charge you. That is like going to Los Vegas and having the house place your bets. Here is on to play Bear for the near future.
Obama is weaning the Mortgage companies from the governments dependency.
Its been seven long years of the housing markets starting to fall apart since the republicans ignited the fuse that exploded the Housing Markets. 2006 to 2011 American homes lost, on “Average” 33% of their purchased value. Politicians on both sides of the aisle promised , and promised, and promised to build a more secure system of financing American homes. Results of their inability due to a dysfunctional congress cemented the nationalization of housing financing.
Last year 87% of the new mortgages were government guaranteed through Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration. Near on to 9 out of 10 new homes were under the terms of the guaranteed mortgages and or loans.
August 6th 2013 that would be challenged and demands for a change from Obama in a speech stating that the housing market is on the mends and its time to “wind down” Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.. In the Phoenix speech Obama stated “I believe that our housing system should operate where there’s a limited government role and private lending should be the backbone of the housing market,”
Obama praised how the bipartisan effort on replacing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac… New system, would charge lenders, for a government guarantee, if they should so require one. Increasing the cost of loans is a given. A braking mechanism to runaway housing scenarios.
Obama is seeking to return the housing markets to the levels prior to the lighting of the fuse in 2006. Pass 5 years 87% new mortgages were government guaranteed. Before the republican’s creation of the deregulated crisis, less than 40% was government guaranteed new mortgages. We are witnessing the slow transition of returning housing markets back to the private sectors. One is with the rising cost of interest on a 30 year loan in July was 4.37 %, which is a full percentage point higher from the previous year. Government is pulling back its suppression to foster low interest rates to new mortgages. Consumers damaged credit due to the Great Recession is suppressing a return to housing markets by the consumers. Further consumer suppression strategies for housing is now being demonstrated by Freddie Mac that requires credit scores 756 and higher to be eligible for application for a mortgage. That’s an increase from their 720 credit score requirements from the 2006 era of mortgaging.
Mortgage companies are fearing the pursuit of refunds from the lenders when borrowers default is to aggressive. Obama counters that to continue with government subsidizing the responsibility of the lender is not acceptable in the long run for housing.
Taxpayers will remain on the hook for future housing bubbles without some coherent reform to the present system is put forth. Bipartisan will demand sound and rational debate. Difficulty is when , Tea is being served during House debates interrupting rational intelligent debates to move forward.
Interest groups, banks, builders, real estate agents and the consumers will seek to persuade the politicians course in their goals for financial reform in the housing markets. Standard obstacles in a bipartisan debate. No doubt they will be again. Hopefully without Tea being served.
A distasteful scenario appears on the horizon. Cost of owning a home will rise without the government support and increase the reluctance for mortgage companies to lend. Now this where politicians go to work and earn their pay. Negotiate, debate, argue, compromise, present the nation with a results and move on.
Any reduction in government support for the mortgage market is likely to increase the cost of home borrowing!
