DeGiro hat die Liste der kostenfreien ETFs aktualisiert – Stand 31.03.2018

DeGiro ist der günstigste Broker in Deutschland, der nicht nur die kleinsten Gebühren hat, sondern auch bietet viele ETFs quasi kostenlos an. Leider sind viele davon wegen PRIIPs für EU-Privatinvestoren unzugänglich geworden. DeGiro hat die Liste aktualisiert.

JuniorDepot I – Eröffnung bei DeGiro – Basic oder Custody?

Finanzieller Analphabetismus in Deutschland ist – unserer Erfahrung nach - wirklich schrecklich. Leute wollen keine Steuererstattung beantragen (lassen), lehnen jegliche Alternativen zur Hausbank ab und zahlen (zu) hohen Zinsen, und so weiter und so fort. Heute aber berichten wir um einen erfreulichem Fall: einer von unseren Stammleser will für seine siebenjährige Tochter das Depot eröffnen und €100/mo. investieren, so dass die Mädle sich zur Volljährigkeit ein Auto leisten kann.
Da es ein wirklich vorbildliches Vorhaben ist, werden wir dieses Projekt während der nächsten 11 Jahre ausführlich erläutern. Wir fangen mit der Brokerwahl und die organisatorischen Nuancen an.

So we analyzed them and came to a conclusion that although the costs of futures rolling (and ETF fees) are not negligible, they are also not so important, compared to the recent movements of commodity prices.

There were ten futures for the nearest months
Roll over, roll over.
And the January futures was to expire
Nine!
