This month was nothing super crazy portfolio wise. I stuck to my plan as I should, so we keep on investing! A lot of people are scared of a second big drop in the stock market though. I don’t think that should be a reason to stand on the sidelines. I think consistency is key when it comes to (passive) investing, so that is what I’ll keep on doing!

Don’t forget that you can always find an up to date overview of all the ‘numbers’ in my portfolio on the My Portfolio page.

Portfolio overview

Every category is still in the green with cryptocurrencies leading the way big time. With a bit of luck, my Stock portfolio reaches €10.000 next month which will be an exciting milestone!

Monthly Cash-flow

Monthly cash-flow is the same as last month. I am still cashing out P2P investments. I am investing this money in Bitcoin which causes my monthly Cryptocurrency investments to be slightly higher than ‘the plan’.

Portfolio Allocation

  • cash: Saved €700
  • Stocks: Invested €1000  + €125.37 appreciation
  • Crypto: Invested €200 + €426.60 appreciation
  • P2P: Withdrew €200 + €1.96 appreciation

This was not a bad month at all. Green across the board but nothing as crazy as last month! I’m getting close to a personal milestone of having €10.000 invested in the stock market. Other than that, this month was just a normal, ‘stick-to-the-plan’, month!

Overview

This month was certainly not as exciting as the last to months. The corona-virus measures are easing in most countries which, I think, gives investors a lot of hope. This together with big government stimuli and interest rates at all-time lows are probably pushing stock prices higher. Of course, we can not be sure whether a next drop will come or not. Only time will tell!

Have a good day and thanks for reading!

  1. Hi Michiel,

    Thanks a lot for sharing your personal portfolio and insights with us.

    Looking at your portfolio, I was wondering if there is a specific reason why you are holding so much money in your savings account? It is not really creating a lot of extra value with the low-interest rates. Would it not be better for you to invest more in ETFs. Or are you planning on using this money in the near future for buying an apartment or something?

    Looking forward to hearing from you and keep up the good work!

    Cheers

    1. Hey Dennis,

      I’m replying from my phone so excuse me for possible mistakes.

      You are exactly right, I want to buy an appartment in a couple of years time! Otherwise I would never hold that much i savings!

      Michiel
