1. ACCOUNT SUMMARY (as of the last day of the month)

Based on the statement (29 Dec 2017), we have $53.87 profit after taking into account a -$18.69 currency impact.

The first week of 2018 has been great! Our returns went up even more to $129.54 but so did the currency impact -$58.71.

SGD time-weighted returns: 4.4%
USD time-weighted returns: 8.3%


We receive USD $10.27 dividends which have been paid and reinvested. This amount of dividends would have easily offset the fees incurred till date!


We see the first “SELL” transaction when the reoptimization took place. The timing was almost perfect! GLD was bought at $119.74 and XLP at $57.02 on 20th Dec 2017. The current price at the time of writing is $125.46 (4.8%) for GLD and $56.68 (-0.6%) for XLP.
