A roller coaster
September turned out to be a roller coaster month, with US-China trade war fears dominating most of the price action. At one point I was down up to $3k month on month! Ultimately my portfolio turned it around to ultimately settle at almost a wash. Other than that, it was quiet month for me with no transactions made. Gains in portfolio value was mainly due to capital injection into my warchest.
The macro-economic and geo-political environment is getting pretty complicated, with the ongoing trade war, emerging market crises, US White House turmoil and the looming US mid term elections in November. Where all these will lead us and how it will be resolved, nobody knows. I only know that I need to raise cash to be ready for any opportunities.
Till then, keep calm and collect dividends.
