Because of trade war, global market started to sell off. My total portfolio value dropped to $801,728.52 despite additional fund of $4,000 injected. Excluding the fresh fund from monthly contribution, the portfolio held up rather well as the value only dropped -0.94% compared to the peak in April. In comparison, major indexes lost around 9-10% of their value. STI lost some 300 points from 3400 to around 3100, Hang Seng 3000 points from 30000 to 26900, Nasdaq 800 points from 8100 to 7300, etc.
Portfolio return YTD as of 31 May 2019 was 1.34%, XIRR YTD 5.25%, and XIRR since inception dropped to a low 4.18%. I received total dividends of $1,423.76 in May.
