Recent Trades [December 2021]

R

Ugh, I have so many half-written posts saved in my drafts. Really need to finish some. But in the meantime here’s what I’ve been up to lately: not much.

My shares and crypto portfolios have absolutely tanked over the past few weeks, leaving me with a bit of a mess and I’m unsure what to do. Markets seem to be operating in a way that whatever choice I make, it’s the wrong one, so I’ve held off from buying. Plus flying lessons – far out they are not cheap. Every time a lesson gets cancelled due to bad weather (of which there’s been a lot recently) I’m like YES! MONEY!

Recent Trades [November 2021]

I haven’t done much trading recently: NSW coming out of lockdown + taking up flying lessons + booking holidays has drained me of my spare cash, so it’s been mostly HODL each day.

The whole Evergrande problem hasn’t been resolved – really wondering when that’ll come to a head.

I’m not sure how frequently I should do these posts. At the moment I’m going with my gut, just writing when I feel like I’ve done a few – but whatever a “few” is is some arbitrary number that depends on the alignment of the stars or whatever. But here’s what I’ve been up to recently. I’m due for a quarterly rebalance on Hedgefundies on Friday so I’ll do a separate post about that then. But anyway, here’s my activity since the last post about this 2 months ago…

Recent Trades [August 2021]

R

I’ve done an abnormally large amount of trades in the past few weeks – mainly as a result of:

  1. Lockdown hitting Sydney so there’s nothing else to spend money on for the next few months.
  2. A lot of holiday refund money coming into my bank account.

I think I’m about tapped out for the rest of the month, but we’ll see – I’m still trying to chase down about $1,000 in ski season pass refunds, and if that ever comes through I’ll probably dump it on Boeing.
