Here’s my monthly update:
Its been a busy month workwise. I haven’t had the time to do more research, just barely keeping up with whats going on. The US presidential election is already next month. I will probably keep a low profile next month as well.
I’ve bought a small positoin of Nordea Bank to my Swedish portfolio. I might increase my position. It’s a long term hold. The European Bank sector has been pretty week but starting to show some strengt. I’m mostly interested in Handelsbanken and Nordea at the moment. I’ve been reading a few Swedish blogs and they seem to like them. I’ve been a customer of them both for some time. I like them both.
I’ve increased my positon in Hufvudstaden AB and silver futures. I’ve stopped out of my oil with a loss.
Foreign portfolio: I’ve sold Gold Resources and Coresite Reality. The first one I stopped out due to price. The latter due to time.
I’ve added to my Bitcoin XBT position. I want to add more and I also would like to buy a litte more each month. Looks strong. I doubled upp on my Lufthansa (LHA). It should have been stopped along with my Google position but I was too busy with work. Both are now less than 1-2% each of total portfolio value. If the drop more I will sell.
My trading account has been pretty neutral. I have way too many positions. They are green though so I’ll wait and see.

Got to honor stop losses even if I’m too busy working with other stuff.Fail.
Plan for October
- Perhaps buy some Bitcoin and lay low on everything else?
- I’m still reading Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

- Summary of Berkshire letters (see July monthly update)
Good luck and trade safe!
