Portfolio Update (June 2015)

For the month of June, I have closed out all my positions in my US stock portfolio. Not because I foresee bad market movements but because I need the money I had invested for other purposes. It was a bit wasted as I will have to restart my plans for retirement via dividends. Remember to only invest in money that you know you may not need it in the near future.

My apologies for doing this update so much later than I had intend to. Have been busy with some major updates at TradingCommand. Now that I am free and of course since today is Hari Raya Puasa, a public holiday, I can spend a little time to do my updates of  this website.

In June, I have sold all my positions in my US portfolio. Do not worry, it is not because that I foresee the market is going to crash but mainly because I need the money for other purposes. It is very wasted because as a long term investor, I had wanted to build my portfolio so that it can help me to collect dividends using the DRIP technique for my retirement. The earlier I start, the earlier I can achieve my goals.

Morale of the story, only invest in the money that you know you will not need 10-20 yrs down the road.
