Portfolio Updates (September 2014) – Defensive Investment Strategy

This month was a good month for passive income, with a large dividend payout from Croesus REIT.

For allocation, I have scaled down on equities, as I foresaw a possible correction for the upcoming weeks, at the start of September.

For October, I foresee that stocks will be rather flat, so I will be focusing more on forex trading to beef up my capital further.

Portfolio Updates (July 2014) – Increased Diversification to Reduce Risk

After the STI broke to new highs this month, there were many good trading opportunities for the SG market, and since I didn’t want to increase my long-term stock holdings at this point of time, I used CFDs to swing trade and capture the price movements, while at the same time keeping my capital liquid and keeping risk low.

Portfolio Updates (March 2014) – Swing Trading Bonanza!

Last month was quite an exciting month, with the markets lying quietly for the large part, before exploding upwards towards the end of the month. This could have been due to window dressing, or the seasonality factor. http://synapsetrading.com/2011/06/market-seasonality-and-statistics/
