In the short time since I posted, I have tried to advance economic and social inclusion.
Since July 8, I have only posted my stock portfolio. I invested in these companies solely on the basis that these stocks appear to have price and volume momentum, based purely on a mathematical algorithm developed recently by us.
I have stopped writing in this blog and you may now view my portfolio updates in www.theedgemarkets.com. Enjoy!
My portfolio fell marginally yesterday, along with the broader market.
The portfolio value decreased by 0.45% to RM107,322.42 while the FBM KLCI declined by 0.25%.
Total returns for the portfolio declined from 7.8% to 7.3%.
The portfolio started on 8 July 2014 with a capital of RM100,000. Since then, it has outperformed the FBM KLCI by 8.7%, and has registered an annualised return of 40.5%.
