An index fund or index tracker is a collective investment scheme (usually a mutual fund or exchange-traded fund) that aims to replicate the movements of an index of a specific financial market
Types of indexing
Traditional indexing
Indexing is traditionally known as the practice of owning a representative collection of securities, in the same ratios as the target index. Modification of security holdings happens only when companies periodically enter or leave the target index.
[edit] Synthetic indexing
Synthetic indexing is a modern technique of using a combination of equity index futures contracts and investments in low risk bonds to replicate the performance of a similar overall investment in the equities making up the index. Although maintaining the future position has a slightly higher cost structure than traditional passive sampling, synthetic indexing can result in more favourable tax treatment, particularly for international investors who are subject to U.S. dividend withholding taxes. The bond portion can hold higher yielding instruments, with a trade-off of corresponding higher risk, a technique referred to as enhanced indexing.
[edit] Enhanced indexing
Enhanced indexing is a catch-all term referring to improvements to index fund management that emphasize performance, possibly using active management. Enhanced index funds employ a variety of enhancement techniques, including customized indexes (instead of relying on commercial indexes), trading strategies, exclusion rules, and timing strategies. The cost advantage of indexing could be reduced or eliminated by employing active management. Enhanced indexing strategies help in offsetting the proportion of tracking error that would come from expenses and…...

Colloidial Silver

...to use Colloidal silver as my topic. The main reason I choose this is my passion to educate others to the benefits of non-western doctor prescribed medicine. I have a belief there are many things which can be helped and cured using natural means, with fruit, vegetables and naturally occurring minerals. My belief is that many of the medicines toted by doctors can infact make you more unwell, then requiring more medicine and lining the pockets of the Huge Pharmaceutical companies. Hence my research and sharing of the information I have on a simple product known as colloidal silver has been misrepresented as a cure, but then goes on the state all the uses that colloidal silver can be used for topically and internally, when used in the correct doses. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-supplements/ingredientmono-779-COLLOIDAL%20SILVER.aspx?activeIngredientId=779&activeIngredientName=COLLOIDAL%20SILVER With controversial topics that challenge the “normal” beliefs I find personally looking into uses through history often helpful thing be link here shows the uses of colloidal silver throughout history dating back to 4,000BC article written and referenced By Dr J Wesley Alexander seems to be a well-researched and factual piece of writing.

The Silver Bullet Information

...When Brooks uses the term "silver bullet," he is referring to a miracle fix to be able to create better software more efficiently, while keeping reliability and security. The push for discovering a "silver bullet" has been amplified by the speed that hardware has been advancing. It has been easier to advance hardware over software because hardware is a physical object, while software is abstract. This has is an advantage because new materials can been found that are smaller, faster, and easier to produce. However since software is abstract, it is up to the team developing the software to overcome essence difficulties and accidental difficulties of technology. Essence difficulties are challenges that are just a part of computer science that are unavoidable. Complexity is a good example of this because as we create new features, the developers have to add to previous software because the old software has features that are still being used. Accidental difficulties are challenges that have been created by computer scientists that are slowing down the process. Computer language is an example of this because old languages took a long time to develop with, but as new languages have been created, the developing process has sped up. These two types of difficulties are different due because of what creates them. Essence difficulties are mostly characteristics of software, while accidental difficulties are introduced by computer scientists. When developing ultra-large-scale......

Price

...power, and nowhere has this been more apparent than in the proliferation of Internet auction sites. Sellers are able to post goods for sale on sites such as eBay or eBid, with or without a reserve price, and buyers are able to place their bids from (theoretically) anywhere in the world. The price rises as more people bid, until there is only one buyer left, who then buys the product at the final bid price. Buyers can pay by credit card through an escrow company (that holds the funds until the goods are delivered) or can make arrangements directly with the seller for payment. In recent years the process has moved a step further with the advent of reverse auctions. Firms such as Letsbuyit.com bring buyers together to bid for products. The philosophy is simple; rather than bidding against other purchasers, and forcing the price up, the reverse auction arranges for buyers to join together and force the price down. For example, a manufacturer may offer an LCD TV for £800. If, however, 100 people are prepared to place a single order, the price might drop to £600. If 200 people are prepared to buy, the price might drop to £500. The price paid to the supplier will be dictated by the number of buyers, so Letsbuyit.com begins by negotiating a series of steps at which the price will fall. The prices are posted on the website for a set period, but once the product is sold out it will not be available to later bidders. If the number of people wishing to buy the product does not meet a......

Silver Bear Spread

...Futures and Options December 9, 2013 Authored by: Kelly Smith Derivatives Markets: Futures and Options December 9, 2013 Authored by: Kelly Smith | Silver Bear Put Spread | | An investment strategy to capitalize on a forecasted weakness in the silver spot market | | Silver Bear Put Spread | | An investment strategy to capitalize on a forecasted weakness in the silver spot market | Hypothesis – Silver Prices Forecasted to Decline Based on key macro and micro economic indicators relevant to the silver market, I conclude that spot silver prices will continue to decline in both the short and long term. Several noteworthy firms also support this hypothesis, including UBS, CPM Group, and HSBC Holdings. UBS, for example, lowered their 2014 silver price forecast December 2, 2013, citing that “the new year will likely tempt investors to move out of precious metals into other assets.” They lowered their average price expectations for silver from $25 previously to $20.50/oz. for 2014 and from $24 to $21 in 2015. For the purpose of this assignment, I am assuming the role of a speculator. As such, I will open a Silver Bear Spread with the intention to capture a significant short-term profit – the intended result based on my hypothesis that silver prices will continue to trend lower. Silver Supply and Demand Economics Industrial demand growth, driven by technology advances for several decades, appears to have plateaued. In the last decade......

In historical times it was used as a currency. Used as both an industrial metal and a hard asset, it plays double duty in the commodities market. It has also become an investment vehicle which provides a safe haven from the unpredictable stocks and bonds. Trading it and predicting its price is a careful balancing act between what consumers need and what the currency market demands. The objective of the paper is to study the demand and supply mechanism for the silver market. Due to the dynamic nature of the market, the demand and supply forces keep changing due to various reasons; the author has tried to find the same. The author has further tried to study the implications of the demand and supply on the price trends.

I think she wanted to, planned to. She did love me at first. My young heart bonded to her because she loved me. I tried so hard not to change. I tried so hard it hurt. But I couldn't hold it back for long. Horror at my hideous form killed all her love for me. But her disgust didn’t kill my love for her. I don't remember my life before I came to Mistress. I know I did not come to be when I first looked in her face, but I can remember nothing else of my life. She named me Lyneth on that day. A sore blow struck me later when she saw my ungodly form and hardened her heart against me. I suppose I was fortunate she didn’t kill me or turn me out. But she kept me. Though her rejection tortured me, I preferred it to isolation. She never called me by the name she gave me after that. She only called...

Long John Silvers Marketing Mix

...Long John Silvers Marketing Mix Long John Silvers is a fast food establishment that started back in 1969. It started with one restaurant that grew to many more by the 1980's. As they learned how to market their products over the years, they became a well known word around town for their seafood meals that were boasted to be a much better price and deal than going to a real seafood restaurant. In this paper, we will examine the marketing mix and how it effects Long John Silvers. The marketing mix has four main components, product, place, price and promotion. We will examine each one of these mixes and how they pertain to Long John Silvers. The first marketing mix component is product. The product is an important part of the marketing mix and is the basis for any company to offer either a service or product. The product usually goes through a life cycle. The beginning stages where the product is new and not well known yet. The growth phase where there is a dramatic increase in sales and popularity. This is followed by maturity where the product reaches its top out. The last phase which is decline when maybe other companies or the same one invent or rework the product to help take it back around again through the life cycle.(Perner,2008,pp.5) Long John Silvers has made many advances over the years to their menu and have included items that would cater to a wide range of tastes whether it was seafood or not. Many of their products have been around since the......

Silver vs Gold

...Abstract The historic silver/gold price ratio was 15 or 16:1, but in recent years, silver is relatively cheaper ranging from about 40:1 to 80:1. On Jan 24th, 2003, with silver at $4.89/oz. and gold at $368/oz., the ratio is 75:1. This means that silver is currently undervalued, and cheaper than historic norms, and thus it is better investment than even gold if investors want to “buy low and sell high”. The supply and demand fundamentals for silver are extraordinary. Annual supply is about 650 million ounces, and annual demand is about 800 million ounces. Considering refined and mined known silver reserves, there are far less silver in the world than gold. About 150 million ounces of silver vs. 4000 million ounces of gold. Investors may get so much silver for their money. A bag of junk silver weighs about 55 pounds, and the size of a bowling ball. If investors invested $100,000 into junk silver coins, at $3500/bag, that would give them 28.5 bags each weighing 55 pounds, or 57 bags weighing 27 pounds each, or about 1571 pounds total. Could they imagine moving that much around their house if they had to move? Silver is so cheap it creates physical problems for investors today! Keywords Silver, Gold, Awareness, Differences, Prospective, Investment. Chapter 1 Introduction Lately, value investors are moving towards into silver investment rather than gold investment due their infatuation and brighter prospect gain look continuously. True, both metals have not...
