This is a monthly post showing the daily fluctuations of roughly 95% of my portfolio. This is what I would consider my main investment accounts, the others are not worth the time to figure into the equation from a time perspective.
Looking at the month of April, we see that this portion of my portfolio decreased overall -12,053.44 for the month, or a loss of -$573.97 per trading day. Ouch.
At the high point in the month, this portfolio was up as much as $21,140.27 on 4/17/2018. The low point was the very first trading day at -$19, 203.76 (tough way to start out the month). There was a 5 day losing streak from 4/18 to 4/24 that totaled -$35,701.10. Meanwhile, the best win streak for the month was just 4 days from 4/12 to 4/17 but only totaled $16,449.26.
Worst losing day was on 4/2 for a -$19,203.76. Single biggest gain day occurred on 4/10 at $12,008.64.
Number of days with a loss of greater than $10,000 sits at 4 days. Number of days with gains of greater than $10,000 was just 2.
The range from the low point to the high point of the portfolio for the month was $40,344.03.
Something new I’ve added for the month is the absolute value data. This is to show the average daily fluctuation the portfolio is experience regardless of a loss. This figure shows each trading day of the month, $7112.62 was the average absolute daily fluctuation I experienced.
This type of data is just to you how much an all stock portfolio can fluctuate on a daily basis. You can definitely see the risk/reward was not there for the month. It also shows the “easy come, easy go” with money being invested all stock…
I am a little pressed for time, so you’ll have to excuse the rough charts and data, not being formatted better. However all of the data is presented below in excel for your perusal…
