With continuing market volatility due to worry of the fallout from trade war between US and China and recession, I made some purchase in July to increase my equity allocation. I was aiming to increase my equity allocation to around 50% to avoid cash/bond dragging down my overall portfolio return. I didn’t know when a major correction would happen, however what I could do was to have my war chest ready.
