Well, i blinked and March just flew by, during that time I managed to not do a follow up post about the market, i changed jobs, i took up new hobbies but one thing never changes – getting some dividend income at the end of the month. This month was decent, it was the first time this year i had exceeded what i made month for month last year.
The tally this month came in at a $804.44, last year i made $496.75. Not a bad boost by any means. My portfolio is still in massive flux so some months i’ll beat, some months it’ll be less but we’ll see how i’m tracking by June.
I have taken on ‘excessive’ risk from late last year which is still in play, things seem to be playing out finally on these trades but it will create a significant change ( good or bad ) to my results when it runs its course. I should have a handle on this by the end of summer.
Markets are just in sideways chop, my hunch is we’ll trend sideways for a good chunk of the year in the US Markets, Europe and emerging markets are presenting interesting opportunities.
Have a great week
