The IA Portfolio Update: 42.9% Cash on hand

With 42.9% cash of my investment portfolio warming up and ready to strike at the trough of the economic waves, so what? I dont even know when it’s to happen..

Hello all,

It has been a long time since I’ve updated my portfolio as I’m vested for the long term. As an NSF with age of 20, I surely do not have piles of investment capital so commission costs are obviously the killers. Thus ever since the wind up of BCIP’s no minimum commission promotion, I’ve stopped chipping into any stocks and started allocating my savings into the Investable Cash section.

This gradually led to an unhealthy level of 42.9% Cash on hand as of current.. With these cash of my investment portfolio warming up and ready to strike at the trough of the economic waves, so what? I dont even know when it’s to happen.. Haha

Either way, I believe my overall investment performance on the four stocks did not fail me. Despite SPH losing some stepping, I am still trusting my ownership of the company for obvious reasons (leveraging Singapore Government’s power and their shift towards online media). The all-time top performing stock (including unrealised gain) that I’m holding will be Singtel (Z74) two weeks ago, giving me a good 11% return on cost merely holding it only for 7 months.

As for my OANDA FX Account, I’ve just closed off three trades last week, adding to my monthly side income.
A good 25% gain from my $700 account after spotting a high probability arbitrage set-up for months, coupled with some market psychology levels and technical analysis confirmations. It sure doesn’t come often but as long as you’re patient, currency trading isn’t all that scary and fast-paced. I trade weekly candles.

I’m doing the right thing at this moment stuffing cash under my bed while I wait?
Well, I’m not sure of the answer myself.. But I’m currently considering future investing via DBS Vickers and opened it before the end of this year when I hit legal 21 heh. 😉
