INVESTING FOR A RICH RETIREMENT

HUMBUG’S INVESTMENT DIARY 24th AUGUST 2018

FEATURE POINTS

Great British Trade Off portfolio is up £329 on the week.

The portfolio is up 7.3% since April, I’m 63% invested.

Nothing to buy or sell in the coming week, although I’m jittery and am watching things closely.

I said last week I was off to watch paint dry to get some excitement as there was nothing to do with the portfolio. I didn’t find any paint to watch, but I got my excitement by saving a life.

I saw a baby bee caught in a spiders web and thrashing around desperately try to escape. So I got a pair of scissors and cut the web around the bee, and lowered it onto the top of a wall.

A combination of my holding what was left of the web with the end of the scissors and the bee being able to get some traction from the rough surface of the bricks meant it was able to scramble free and fly off.

I wonder if I’ll get a jar of honey for Christmas as a thank you present.

Again there’s nothing for me to do this week, but I am a bit jittery.
