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 November, which was a wild ride, we see that this portion of my portfolio increased overall $13,946.78 for the month, or a gain of $357.40 per trading day. This reverses the loss that occurred in October. For the year, 7 months have been positive, 4 months not so much.
At the high point in the month, this portfolio was up as much as $30,177.77 on 11/7/2018. The low point was the on 11/23/2018 at -28,610.17. So, finishing positive for the month is a victory.There was a maximum 5 day losing streak. Meanwhile, the best win streak for the month was also at 2 days.
Worst losing day was on 11/20 for -$13,268.14. Single biggest gain day occurred on 11/7 at $15,272.70.
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 4.
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, $7,307.99 was the average absolute daily fluctuation I experienced (about $200 daily higher than October). Volatility increasing significantly over the last 2 months.
This type of data is just to you how much an all stock portfolio can fluctuate on a daily basis. Can you stomach these types of daily fluctuations?
