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?
What a happening month July was: Greece and China grabbed the headlines and the markets were quite choppy. How did my portfolio perform during this time?
June was a rather happening month, with the economic crisis in Greece reaching new heights, rattling my small portfolio. Am I still on track?
