CPF-IS under review.

Hi guys,

For those who don’t read newspaper, it looks like there are some changes coming to the CPF-IS according to The Straits Times’s Government to review CPF Investment Scheme: DPM Tharman.

Wow… According to the article, 80% of the people cannot earn even higher than 2.5% of the basic CPF OA interest and nearly 45% of CPF-IS had losses over same period. What!!!

August 2016 Portfolio

Hi guys,

August is here and I am halfway through my second semester of my studies. Manage to score pretty well for my first semester and is currently on track to complete the entire course by July next year.

Over the month of August, there was no transaction made to the portfolio. Decision was made to observe the market both Singapore and US on any potential crashes. Logic is quite simple. I do not feel comfortable increasing positions when the I have no idea where the market is going since it is at an all-time highs. Given the passive nature and time commitment I have assumed since I started my studies earlier this year, I would rather average down on my cost than average up so it would be unlikely that I would add any counters or positions when the market is increasing.
