Oil Price Recovers - Yearly Balance Update to 7-Feb-2015

This week the USD went strong with solid jobs data. The stocks recovered, and oil price recovered. Gold price was slashed down towards end of week. JPM and ATT paid dividends this week.

It has been good week for my portfolio. Yearly profit increase to 5.3K.

The market data can be deceiving. Good news can mean start of weak cycle. Need to watch closely, the recent strong dollar could require some pullback soon. The stocks managed to break out, but a new high still seems some uncertainty. Interestingly, the quick market movements always can pose surprises.

This week the US stocks went bearish. USD was strong, GLD and Oil price have recovered towards end of week.

This is last week of January 2015. The yearly profit stood at 2.9K. And largely from currency gains.
Updated chart as follows:
The first month have shown a bumpy journey. I think this will be the theme of this year. Many opportunities but turbulent times. The stocks may not always be that bullish any more, but other things like commodity and currency can pose good opportunity for gains.

This is another week of roller coaster of markets. USD went down, Gold price got a boost. The stocks were pressed down but pulled up on the last day.

Have to say the floating balance has been saved by the last day. Yearly profit increase to 1.5K.

This week I've reduced some holding of Stocks and GLD. The Dow index's shape is still not so settled yet.
