Where did July go? Tempus fugit big time…on the plus side, the dividends appear to come around quicker so without further ado, my total for July came in at $2218.70. This has been a notable month on several fronts, first, my lifetime target is now around 50k, that is over 5 years – no big deal right? However, things are moving and it will take me only 2-3 yrs to hit 100k – then things start to get interesting.
I hit my annual total for 2016 in July this year, this means i have 5 months left of the year to see how far we go, i am expecting to land somewhere in the $21-22k area.
Finally, the dividend income this month was significantly higher ( over 300% ) than the same time last year – this again was down to some fortunate swing trades, some discipline and patience.
I did some tiny trades here and there, nothing big but the trading bug comes out when the volatility picks up. I am still of the mindset we are in a trading range for the next few months, the market may attempt a shot at 2500 but i still believe there is a surprise mini-correction due….again, no rhyme or reason for this apart from gut-feel and that has been plenty wrong in the past. This market is breaking records and rules all over the place.
I hope your investments are treating you well
