Screening DeGiro free ETFs – 5 months later

On 3rd September 2017 we published a gallery of 21 ETFs and ETCs, which can/could* be traded (one a month) free of charge by our broker DeGiro. We always encourage you not to forget the past, so we publish current charts of these ETFs and you can see how things went on.

Recall that we have chosen the ETFs that in our opinion might either trend or revert after a significant drop. However, we emphasized that it was a very preliminary analysis and that chart screening is a complement (not a substitution) of the fundamental analysis.

Anyway, the results are as follows:

[1] TAN - US18383Q7390 - GUGGENHEIM SOLAR ETF - uptrend continued, +18%
