This is something I did back in September 2017, and figure I will try to make it a regular feature. This shows the daily fluctuations of my portfolio (or about roughly 95%).
The goal has been to build enough passive dividend income, so as to not have to worry about short term market fluctuations. So here is the daily fluctuations for March 2018…
Some interesting tidbits from the above data…
Biggest Single Day Loss: -$17,665.25
Average Daily Gain/Loss: -$736.24
Biggest Single Day Gain: $14,506.42
Longest Losing Streak: 5 Days
Longest Win Streak: 3 Days
Worst 1 Week Loss: -$45,701.49
Best 1 Week Gain:$27,836.41
Total Gain/Loss For Month: -$15,461.03
I did not trade a single day last month, this is from buy and hold investing. This feature will continue on a regular basis if traffic and interest is high enough. More regular articles are to come (just needed a break)
So, what do you think? Are those fluctuations something you can stomach.
