Stock Market

I am an avid investor in the stock market. I invest with my own money and with money that I borrow from friends and family. Since I am often asked the performance of my portfolio, I decided to post my result every Friday. What you see below are two weekly charts, one of the TSX and the other one of my real portfolio.

 

Portfolio growth

Portfolio growth or decrease is not exclusive to market returns, (not yet). It is composed of market returns, additional deposits or withdrawals, increase or decrease of debt.
