In case you haven’t been following along, every two weeks I am contributing $1,000 into the 70/30 portfolio. About 6 weeks ago, I contributed the first $1000 into the 70/30 Portfolio with Questrade. Here is a recap from August 26th 2019:
Now it’s time to contribute another $1,000 into the portfolio. I’m going to be buying just the right amount of individual index funds to keep my target allocations (+/- 5%) within my chosen range. To start, in my Allocation Tool, I adjusted the unit price so that it is current. I then bought approximately $1,000 worth of index funds in a way that kept my allocations relatively close to my original target goals. Feel Free to use my Allocation Tool: allocationtool10092019-
The markets have been turbulent the last week mainly due to trade talks between the US and China, despite this the 70/30 portfolio is up $1.81 including the $8.11 in dividends so far. Next $1,000 contribution will be around October 23rd 2019.
