Building my investment portfolio: a first look at how I do it.

Image
This is the first video in a series I plan to do on my investing journey. I will try and do regular updates as the portfolio progresses.

Currently, I have 5000 EURO invested in Gold, Silver, Cryptocurrencies and dividend stocks. My goal is to grow this to 20.000 EURO this year. This growth will come mainly from me putting in my own money into the portfolio, but hopefully, capital gains and dividends that I reinvest will help me get there.

How to Find Dividend Stocks to Invest in

Image
For a long time, I have been hesitant to invest in the stock market myself. The main reason I told myself is that I am already heavily invested in the stock markets via my pension plans.

The thing is I have no control over my pension plans. I just have to hope the money I put in is managed well and then hopefully when I am 70 years old I might retire.

Wait a minute ... 70!? Yes, 70, or maybe even later. Governments keep changing the rules concerning retirements.

That is why I have decided to build up a stock portfolio outside of the tax benefited pension plans. I want to build a portfolio of shares in good companies that will pay me dividends. This portfolio should, once it has grown enough, generate an income through dividends alone that will cover most of my expenses.

To achieve this we need to buy dividend-paying stocks at cheap prices. In this post, I will tell/show you how I go about this.

Which Forex Pairs are Generally Trending and Which Ones Tend to Revert to the Mean

Image
In this article, I will systematically investigate the tendency of different Forex pairs to either trend or revert to the mean. I will do so by backtesting a simple trend-following strategy. (Code available on Github. See the end of this article.)

“The trend is your friend.”, is a very well known trading adage. Another thing you read a lot in trading books, blogs, etc. is that the market only trends 20, 30, 40, xx% of the time.

I was wondering how these ideas relate to the Forex markets.

I asked myself the following questions:

Do all forex pairs have the same trending tendency?Are there any pairs that are actually generally more mean-reverting in nature?And which Forex Pairs are generally trending and which ones tend to revert to mean?
The reason I was asking myself these questions, is because I have experienced different behaviors between forex pairs while trading the same strategy.

Some pairs just keep going in the direction of my trades, while others seem to turn around more quic…

In this post, I will investigate and show you the ways I know that you can automate your trading without the need to be a professional software developer. In fact, you don't even need to be able to code. The main reason why I trade end-of-day strategies is that I do not want to be in front of my computer screen trading the whole day. Another way not to be stuck behind your screen for the whole day is to automate your trading strategy. when most people think about automating a trading strategy they think about writing code and setting up a server and hooking up some trading APIs.
