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?
April means bonus time in my company and it always is a happening month. Secretaries are coming to work with brand new SGD 2,000 handbags, expensive vacations are booked and people seemingly spend money left right and center.
I also spent my whole bonus and I did so in just ten minutes. Read on to find out how!
In March the worth of my portfolio increased by SGD 2,047 and I conducted a little experiment: For one month I would track all my spending down to the last cent and find out where my money goes. The results were quite interesting…
The shortest month whizzed by and the value of my portfolio increased by SGD 3,030. I spent quite a bit of money and decided that it is time to find out where my money is really going.
Read on to see how February went…
January is already over and despite booking an expensive trip to China for Chinese New Year I have managed to stick to my investment plan and blow past my target for January. Read on for more details.
The year ended and while it did not go exactly according to plan my portfolio still increased by quite a bit over the year. I learned a lot about investing and restructured my portfolio to a proper allocation in 2014. Read on to find out how exactly I fared in 2014!
November: my least favorite month. I have no idea why, but nothing exciting ever happens in November. The old year slowly gets wrapped up in the office as the Christmas holidays are coming nearer, most interesting projects are finished and people are starting to relax a little. At least we are spared Europe’s terrible November weather here in Singapore and I am grateful for not having to wait for a tram in the icy snow rain in some European city.
I digress. Back to the topic of this post: November portfolio performance.
What happened? October just flew past in high speed. A trip to Europe for holiday and visiting friends and family and some work travelling and stress in the office made for a very interesting and fast paced month.
Unfortunately I lost around SGD 420 by missing a flight. I took 39 flights so far this year and was never late for any of them, until I read my itinerary wrong and reached the airport after the plane had departed.
