Investment seems to be Plateauing
I started recording my investment journey in Jun 2014. It has been 5 years. Recently, I have realized that my total invested capital has been stagnated at $220K - 230K++ for quite some time.
It doesn't seem to be adding up.
I decided to backtrack and look at my records. In my last post, Aug 2019 Portfolio Update, my total invested capital was ~ S$243K.
And in my first ever post, Jun 2014 Portfolio Update, my total invested capital was ~ S$47K. It has been quite a journey slowly adding to this portfolio.
So looking at my past history, these data points were my invested capital over a period of 5 years:
It looks like my invested capital has stagnated since Aug 2018. I know I have not been investing much especially the start of this year. There was nothing I really wanted to buy (or prices were high).
However, I am really unsure about my war chest. Have I been saving more in my war chest?
Because of that, I shall have to start monitoring my war chest to keep track if I am stagnating or spending more.
As of today:
Total Invested Capital - S$ 243,703
Total S$ in War Chest - S$ 145,117
Waiting for opportunities to deploy a bit of the war chest.
