Two years ago I published my first monthly update for May 2014. Two years later a lot of things have changed…
April was a crazy month and I invested a total of SGD 45,189. Why did I invest so much more than usual? What happened?
March proved rather happening and my portfolio rebounded from a very difficult January and February. I enjoyed a wonderful holiday in Taiwan and spent way too much money, so am I still on track with my goals?
Another month passed by and the year of the monkey has now officially started. How did the portfolio perform? Am I on track?
January was one of the worst months in the short life of my portfolio. With stock prices dropping in Asia and around the world I incurred some heavy paper losses, but as I wrote before it is very important to stay calm and focused on the long term objectives.
Here is how I fared in January…
What an eventful year 2015 was! Now it is time to look back: did I achieve my goals for 2015?
Who would have guessed that October would turn out to be the best month for my small portfolio this year?
September was a month for emerging market bears. Stocks remained under pressure and the overall mood is getting worse with lots of negative news crowding the headlines while our little island is covered in persistent, unhealthy haze. How did my portfolio develop in these tough times?
August probably was the most turbulent month in the short history of this blog. How did my portfolio do in times of falling share prices and wide-spread concern about China’s economy?
