Investment Portfolio Update #12 – Autumn 2018

Fund as at 31 October 2018 = 78,412
Total Cash In = 67,197
Total Profit/(Loss) = 11,215

Summary
Doh, this was the worst performing quarter I have experienced to date. My portfolio has increased by a paltry 127, despite adding cash of 3,266, meaning I recorded an investment loss of 3,139.

Despite checking for portfolio performance everyday, I am pleased that I didn’t panic during this period. I have continued to add to my portfolio, building upon my investment and reducing my dollar cost average as prices have dropped. I have to remember that investing is for the long term, and whilst I am down in this period, overall I am still significantly up.

July 2018 = 78,285
