Portfolio Update 30 June 2016

The biggest news that affects the global financial market this month is surely the outcome of the British referendum to leave EU. Global equity market lost 2 Trillion USD on last Friday alone. However, after 2 days of sell down, the market began to recover. As at today STI recovered the loss from last Friday. Well, if only we can make sense of the market....

I believe that the effect of Brexit is not over, but will unfold slowly in the next few months. Objectively I don't think it will lead to another GFC, though there may be some negative impact.

As at today, STI has recovered all the lost ground from last Friday and Monday. the index closed at 2,840.93, up 49.87points, or 1.79% from last month. My portfolio did not perform as well. Its value only rose 0.62% from a month ago.

Due to my busy schedule this month, I did not do much trade. I bought some SPH shares when the price dipped. I received some shares from DBS and OCBC via scrip dividend scheme. Total fund invested was S$4,900.00.

On the dividend side, total passive income this month was S$10,018.59 from shares and UT (mainly from shares).

Going forward, I will continue to be cautious in the investment. I may consider to shift some of the UT's to bond fund, which are more defensive in uncertain market. Meanwhile I will continue to build up my war chest and waiting for good opportunities to invest.
