I’ve decided to provide my readers with a monthly update as to how my investment accounts did over a 30-day period. I’m doing this so you can track my success and my setbacks.
Notice I said “setbacks”, and not “failures”. This is because in the long run, I believe I will win.
It may help you to have real accounts, owned by an ordinary Joe, to follow.
Without further ado, here are my total returns for the months of January and February 2019:
TD Ameritrade IRA: up 3.23%
TD Ameritrade Custodial: up 0.85%
TD Ameritrade Regular #1: up 0.72%
TD Ameritrade Regular #2: up 6.42%
Robinhood: up 6.43%
TD Ameritrade IRA: down .05%
TD Ameritrade Custodial: down 1.7%
TD Ameritrade Regular #1: down 1.0%
TD Ameritrade Regular #2: down 0.31%
Robinhood: up 1.34%
As you can see January was much better than February.
The overall market bottomed in December and continued well in the month of January. In February, it cooled off from a blistering rally that lasted for a little over a month.
We’ll see what the month of March will bring!
