This is a pretty good month for the portfolio. The USD and HKD finally appreciated against the SGD and some of the DWI picks also rebounded. Organically, the portfolio was up by close to 1%.

It was also a very active month as I sold quite a few counters to take some money off the table and lock in some gains. This trend will likely continue in the upcoming months if the market continues its upward climb.

I am also trying out “lower commission” platforms like the Vickers Cash Upfront option (for buying local stocks) and the FSM One platform (for buying Hong Kong shares). So far, so good and I can consider buying stuff in smaller denominations going forward.

Our investments will also be shifting more towards indexation. This will free up more time and focus and I can then channel these resources to work and writing …
