For the month of December, there was not much changes, as no new purchases were made, since the market was pretty quiet during the holiday season.
However, it was a good time for us to look back and review our portfolio strategy, which has these 3 criteria in order of importance:
- Preservation of capital
- Steady capital appreciation
- Passive income generation
In line with our strategy, we will continue to monitor the asset rotation cycle to buy cheap assets, and also start the hunt for high-yield assets to generate more passive income.
For my total assets, 13% was used for trading, while 43% was used for investing (the market portfolio), while the rest (44%) was savings, real estate, and other investments.
For the market portfolio allocation, there is a small amount in Fixed income (10%), slightly more in stocks (30%) and commodities (20%), and the bulk remains in cash (40%).
