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.

Investor Monkey - Portfolio

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.
