At the end of October 2015, my portfolio stood at $$106,436.79 across all my accounts combined. Comparing to my portfolio balance of $97,787.80 at the end of September 2015, this represents an increase of $8,648.99 for the month of October which represents a 8.84% increase for the month.
New investments accounted for $1,869.37, thereby giving a net portfolio increase of $6,779.62 or 6.93% for the month. After two months of declines, the market and the portfolio increased in October.
After being short of the $100K milestone for a few months, I crossed it this month. Just a couple of years ago, I would not even have imagined having over $100,000 invested in the market. Looking back, it is definitely a great achievement and I am really satisfied about it.
I continued my weekly sharebuilder purchases in October. I also had my quarterly Scottrade FRIP purchase. I did not have any other purchases in the month.
