The market had a mini sneeze during the past couple of weeks and the 15HWW portfolio was not spared.

The portfolio rose slightly by $1k to reach $415,000 but if we took into consideration an injection of around $2k+, this is another relatively poor performance organically.

On the transactions front, this was a busy month as there were quite a few trades executed. 

1. 15HWW Permanent Portfolio
Earlier in the month, the USD actually dipped to USD 1 to SGD 1.36 but recovered back to 1.37 right now.

Interestingly, with the strong performance of the STI ETF (due to banks and developers), Berkshire B and Gold so far, the Permanent Portfolio is the best performing sub-portfolio for me. That’s even with cash and bonds “dragging” the returns. Luckily for me, this is by far the biggest sub-portfolio in terms of quantum. 

USD-SGD Rate: 1.37
