October 2014 Portfolio Performance: -1.4%
In order to bring some regular actual reporting to the site, I will publish a performance update once a month, since that is the frequency in which I check my portfolio anyway.
As a little reminder, the last change made to the portfolio was shifting 30% of it into bonds, both long-term and short-term, and gold, as a hedge against crises. It turned out be pretty wonderful timing because right after that, the German DAX lost 10% in a week. It has regained some of the loss in the meantime, but it’s not as good as my portfolio. Have a look at the graph yourself.
Looks pretty good to me!
