Inching close to $200k stocks portfolio value. Free Disney stock for new Tiger Brokers holders

I had a few goals set (see left panel of my blog). 

Some were unattainable, some came to fruition by time, effort and perhaps, luck.

My newest goal was to hit $200k stocks portfolio value this year. 

It took me 7 years to start investing proper. I used to be a mega saver. The pic below was my cash savings milestone. I think I did a great job in saving those amount! I mean, $300k cash at 30....is pretty crazy. I even set a goal to save $600k by 35.

But I got woke. 

I needed my money to work better. I saved through employment but I don't wish to be tied down by my job. I aim to stop working at 40. How I wished I started my investing journey earlier so I can quit now. 

It was through Tiger Brokers that made investing easier to access foreign markets PLUS it is cheaper.

I no longer have $300k cash. In fact, I'm trying to reduce it to $100k cash - and pile the rest into the market.

As of today, I'm hitting close to $200k portfolio across Tiger Brokers and my CDP. Honestly, my CDP made up of SG stocks is dragging me down. The excitement happens within my Tiger app haha!

Update on Tiger Brokers portfolio

Here's a look at my portfolio value in Tiger. That's a good SGD$13k paper gains :) 

If I had kept the money in the banks, I wouldn't be able to see such gains.

This experience further reinforces the need to invest, and it has been an interesting journey riding the waves in the market!

  1. Do not know how many more years you have in your working life. In any case, it would be prudent to have more cash in the wallet when the current situation is really bad. Just my thot.

I finally cross $700k networth, after 1 year 4 months

I wondered how I should kickstart this post - should I be positive or negative about this? After 1 year 4 months, I finally crossed $700k in networth - returning back to where I've been at, back in Dec 2021.  I am disappointed.  For the past many years, I've always been growing my networth, at around $100-$150k/year. I had big plans to hit a net worth of $850k by December 2022, but the universe had other plans for me. Instead, I only managed to reach $646k, leaving me with a $204k gap to my target.  Ever since I became more aggressive in my "investment" portfolio in 2021, being sucked by greed to deploy most of my cash into stocks and crypto, I fell heavily, along with the crashes. Crypto wiped out 5 digits savings, so did the stock market.  To be honest, ever since the crashes and a bad hit to my net worth, I actually didn't do anything special to improve. I didn't make drastic spending cuts, I didn't stop my holidays, I didn't continue investing (no

First CPF top up in Jan 2023 and tax relief concerns

Detailing my yearly CPF top-up and thoughts.  This is my 8th year of top-up. 1. Top-up $2.5k to Medisave via Paynow Did a $2,500 top up to my Medisave, bringing it to 2023 MA ceiling of $68,500. Done the same for my husband as well. 2. On hold - To top up $5.5k to SA or no? Contrary to the past where I top-up at the start of the year, I have decided to hold off the top-up. A) Running out of cash Firstly, I'm running out of cash. I'm berating myself for degrading to the past where I look forward to my monthly income for cashflow. So I can build up my $100k capital in savings account again, given the current high interest environment.  B) Hitting FRS soon = no tax relief Secondly, I'm concerned about reaching FRS too soon.  The FRS this year is $198,800. I'm now sitting on ~$157k SA which means $41,800 away from reaching this ceiling.  I know some people encouraged maxing this out ASAP. But, as I've crossed 6 digits annual income, maxing FRS soon meant lower tax relie

Starting 2023 with extra $9,979.20

Happy 2023~! I woke up feeling not very positive. It seems like I've brought forward my 2022 negative thoughts along. I ought to be more optimistic! Anyway, my best way of welcoming the new year is to count the new inflow of $ and here's my CPF interest for 2022: Have you check your CPF interest yet?
