Right now I've got shares of ACWI, VTI, and VEU. I like the premise of this fund but notice today the three other funds are all up and VT is down...bad news since VT should perform roughly the same as ACWI and as an average of VTI and VEU.
Very strange. I picked up some for my IRA but now I wish I'd just bought VTI and VEU. I also like the premise of VT, but until the trading volume picks up I think the strande price action will continue.
The fund has been trading away at a deviation from from the NAV during much of the the early trading and has had fairly low volume. Not sure why one would conclude this is worse than ACWI. Once the holdings are more easily accessible it would be easier to compare them. The country weightings seem very similar and the expense ratio is cheaper. Vanguard's ETF often have fairly well constructed indices. The main question I have is whether they will eventually switch to an index with more small cap exposure for VT. Apparently small caps are not the much of the global market if the FTSE all world index tracks almost all of the world equity and barely has any small cap.
The ETF was not synchronized with the market much just after release. I expect that it will come in-line more soon.
