Loads of things going on in August in my Portfolio. I entered three new positions and sold two of my existing holdings. I also came out first in terms of monthly performance against my benchmarks. Momentum was definitely on my side in August. I’m having solid cash-reserves, which I’m looking to get into the market during the rest of the year and hoping to not only break-even on the annual performance but even making a nice profit after the Corona Disaster in the First Quarter of the Year.View Post
July has been a bit overloaded with work from my Consulting with Tritium workstream. Juggling 3 clients at once for most of the month really did keep me busy. On the plus side, I was able to make some nice bucks from it, which I can enjoy now that the work is done and the clients are happy (hopefully). Looking forward to August, just relaxing a bit, going to the beach a lot and eating loads of ice cream.
Unfortunately, my DSL Trading workstream did take a huge hit in July and August will be all about taking a step back, re-thinking and re-defining. Let’s get to it.
July was a bit of a flat runner, after some months with crazy volatility. However, I was able to get some of my cash reserves back into the market and snapped up some highly discounted shares. Still, about 5% of my portfolio is lying in cash at the moment, so I will keep looking out for opportunities throughout August and beyond to get the rest of my cash back to work to ideally being able to finish the year on break-even or a small profit.View Post
June was a strong month for me. Green cash-flow, the 3rd time in a row. My profits are at an all-time high as well and there’s no sign of a downturn in sight just yet. I’m looking at another strong month of July before I might take it a bit easier again in August and enjoy this beautiful island a bit more, I’m living on right now.
Nonetheless, there’s always some fun you can experience, even if you’re working long hours every day. I got myself something exciting, new and fast to enjoy last month – read more about it in the post.
The first half of the year is in the books and well, the second quarter did look a lot better than the first one, didn’t it? I finished last month up way ahead of my benchmarks and hoping to be able to build on that momentum in the second half of the year. Do we see another bull run or is everything falling apart again? We shall see and in any case, you’ll find my monthly recaps here presenting nothing but the facts and stats.View Post
Here it comes, my first red week market recap. It had to come eventually. Fortunately, I am looking at only small losses. Unfortunately, I’m below my monthly target again, meaning the last two days of the month next week, now have to be solid green days with no more losers if I want to hit my monthly target.
In week 25 I didn’t trade at all, cause I was feeling a bit under the weather. Always dangerous sitting at the desk, when you’re not feeling 100%, the risk is just multiplied too much. So best to take it easy, recover and then attack afterwards again.
