It’s been a long time since I’ve updated my blog. Of course I’ve gone into hiding since the market tanked during Nov – Dec 2018 ;-p. To be honest, I was planning to sell off before Christmas to lock in some profits but Fed chairman Powell decided to celebrate Christmas earlier than anticipated so I was caught off guard. Although I have created quite a decent growth portfolio which I still think is worth keeping, seeing it tanked so drastically within a month or two wasn’t pleasant. I was definitely riding the wave of euphoria and guess it was a good wake up call for me. Those who have followed me closely over the years would probably have realized now that my biggest weakness is S.E.L.L.I.N.G.
As I get older and after going through market volatility, I am beginning to wonder whether I need to start diversifying my portfolio beyond equities. There is a time for wealth accumulation and there is a time for wealth protection. Maybe it’s time for me to be more open to alternative instruments available in the market.
BTW, Hyukoh is finally coming to town this month. See you there !
