It’s been a while since I wrote a post so thought I’d share an update on my investments.
The stock market had been going strong so far this year. However, Trump looks to now have poured cold water on things, in threatening a trade war with China. The S&P 500 is down 3% in two weeks, and my favourite Technology Index fund is down 6% so I’ve bought more of that, as I said I would.
There have been some big technology IPOs in Pinterest, and Uber yesterday but I’ve steered clear of both of those. Instead, I’ve been looking at start-ups to invest in.
If you’re interested in investing in a start-up but not sure how to go about it read my previous post first
Did you ever hear about someone who joined a company in its infancy who then, some years later, received a windfall when that company got bought or IPO’ed?
I wanted to share an update on my investments to follow my previous post about the few shares and funds I bought back in January.
Don’t! Get into cash instead. Many, including the likes of hedge fund manager Ray Dalio, are forecasting a market crash, possibly alongside a global recession, in the second half of 2019 / 2020.
