And? You're not really comparing apples with apples here.

 

ASHT40 (RMBT40), STX40 and STAN40 are all just regular market cap top 40s (the oldest ETFs in South Africa).

 

SWIX, RAFI and EW are all completely different from the above three (which all suffer from that inherent flaw that a single share can have too high a weighting).

No, you asked, why do I want a vanilla top 40, so I showed that the vanilla is the best performers from the top 40 selection I must choose from for my TFSA

It's not. Maybe between the two dates you chose but SWIX outperforms it.

 

Take it one year back to the date (on Bloomberg):

3.05% vs 6.40%

 

 

March 18, 2012 to today:

 

NDSWIX: 79.54%

STX40: 52.14%

Chinese rally may halt JSE’s slide:

 

SOME green finally appeared in stock exchanges trading ahead of the JSE’s opening on Wednesday morning, halting five red trading days which have seen the JSE’s all share index lose more than 5% over the past week.

 

Even though mainland Chinese stocks failed to make the inclusion of MSCI’s World Index which is tracked by many exchange-traded funds, the Shanghai Composite Index jumped 1.5%, and the Shenzhen Composite Index nearly 3% on Wednesday morning.

Interesting Read:

I am definitively out of step with just about every observer of the passing economic scene. For I think that today is when the Federal Reserve should indeed announce a rise in the interest rate. The markets in general are predicting that this has a 1% or so chance of happening. And we’re even told by some that the Captain Obvious point is that there won’t be such a rate rise. So, there’s obviously a high likelihood that I am wrong here – but that’s OK. As long as I explain my reasoning then we can at least work out why I am wrong, if indeed I am so.

 

I don’t think that rates should rise to aid pensioners and those on fixed incomes. Nor because we imminently face runaway inflation. Rather, I think that rates have been kept lower than they otherwise would have been in pursuit of an experiment. Quite rightly too, as I consider that experiment to have been worthwhile. It’s just that that experiment is now done and we can see the result. Which is that we shouldn’t be carrying out that experiment any more. I’m in fact insisting that it is the slow job growth just reported which is why rates should rise now.
