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.
For the month of August, I did miss 3 days as I was out of pocket and camping in the Grand Canyon, one of my favorite places to visit.
Looking at the month of August, we see that this portion of my portfolio decreased overall $16,854.97 for the month, or a loss of -887.10 per trading day.
Worst losing day was on 8/5/2019 for -$24,458.74. Single biggest gain day occurred on 8/16/2019 at $14,163.90.
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 5.
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, $8,572.76, was the average absolute daily fluctuation I experienced (about double that of June 2019). So, yeah, it was a wild month.
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?
