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 August, we see that this portion of my portfolio increased overall $23,717.28 for the month, or a gain of $1,031.19 per trading day. This marks 4 solid months of gains in a row. For the year, 5 months have been solid, 3 months not so much.
At the high point in the month, this portfolio was up as much as $27,511.86 on 8/29/2018. The low point was the on 8/1/2018 at -$5,330.01. This was the first time in 4 months, that I was actually negative in the portfolio at any point in time, although very brief. There was a maximum 5 day losing streak from 8/7 to 8/13 that totaled -$12,132.13. Meanwhile, the best win streak for the month was a 3 day streak from 8/16 to 8/20 totaling $17,776.30.
Worst losing day was on 8/1 for -$5,330.01. Single biggest gain day occurred on 8/16 at $8,620.49.
Number of days with a loss of greater than $10,000 sits at 0 day. Number of days with gains of greater than $10,000 was 0.
The range from the low point to the high point of the portfolio for the month was $32,841.87.
The absolute value column is to show the average daily fluctuation the portfolio is experiencing regardless of a gain or loss. This figure shows each trading day of the month, $3,491.56 was the average absolute daily fluctuation I experienced (slightly less volatile than July).
This type of data is just to you how much an all stock portfolio can fluctuate on a daily basis. Compared to June, overall volatility for this portfolio was slightly higher. Average daily fluctuations were lower by about $400.
