Investment Strategies

Strategic investments instead of speculation. Long-term success on the stock exchange depends on more than sheer luck. You can pursue your investment objectives with suitable strategies. Let us introduce some of these strategies to you.
The 3:1 Rule: A basic principle for beginners

It has long been known in the stock market world that one should try to let profits run and cut losses. This represents the basis of the 3:1 rule developed by Joachim Goldberg. In order to achieve success with this strategy in the stock market, investors must be very disciplined. Strict adherence to the 3:1 rule increase their profit opportunities on the exchange in the long run.

Share Ratio = 100 Minus Age. A simple rule for your depot structure

Shares or bonds – which product is better for investors in the long run? This is a question without a general answer, because both types of investment have pros and cons. Therefore, a well-mixed portfolio should contain both. The advantage of shares is their long-term earnings strength. One cannot earn as much with bonds, but they, on the other hand, have the huge advantage of lending stability to one’s portfolio. To figure out the right mix of shares and bonds, using a general rule of thumb can be helpful: stock quotient equals 100 minus your age.

Harvesting Season: In spring, investors zero in on shares with high dividends
The first green of the trees and bushes heralds the spring season and awakens yield collectors, for is the season when companies present their annual results and announce how high their share dividends will be.

Heavyweight Strategy, Betting on the big players

Size matters. Large companies usually have high turnover, profitability and a strong market position, which reflects the success of a company's products and services. Moreover, large corporations are more stable financially than smaller companies, which makes it easier for them to pull through in a crisis.
The 90:10 Strategy: Shifting into sixth gear with leverage products

Solid equities are more profitable in the long run. Because of the risk of short-term price losses, many investors opt for fixed-income securities. This conservative approach limits risks, but it does so at the cost of profit opportunities. This is where the 90:10 strategy comes in.

Investing in companies with strong export business

Export growth rates are on a continuously high level. German companies with a high share in export turnover have a strong correlation with the global economy. Investors can now easily identify and invest in these companies: the strategy index DAXplus Export Strategy contains the ten strongest exporters from DAX® and MDAX®.

Investment by seasons

The summer months on the stock exchange are slow. This old wisdom is indeed proven by statistics. Exchange trading only picks up again in autumn. Investors can now bet on this principle. An index simplifies the strategy. It simply ignores the weaker months of August and September.

Minimum risk - Better performance

Sustained value instead of losses is a key for investors. Professionals use complex structures to increase performance while limiting risk. This type of strategy is reflected by covered-call writing – the investor sells an option while simultaneously purchasing the underlying shares. This approach has now been made accessible to all investors by the DAXplus® Covered Call index, which tracks the strategy.
