We continue the discussion from the last entry


Of the capital contributed this week, we moved 92% of this contribution towards the category reserved for purchasing our assets dedicated to capital gains. The remaining 8% of the capital contribution was placed towards the cash that we simply have ‘on-hand’ in the form of ‘dry powder’ to buy income assets.    

You will notice on the PDF that is attached below, the new allocations …

So now what?

We continue with the same plan that we mentioned in an earlier entry. But truth be told?  This week I plan on kicking my feet up and relaxing a bit.  For income accounts.  Short-term trading.  Forex.  All of it. 

The Fed will be meeting and discussing their decision around interest rates.  As I have pontificated in the past, I hate such time periods.  I can think of no better time, than to take a little mini-vacation.  Relax.  Let the market freak out if it wants to.

As I have said around these parts of late … cash is a position.   And for the month of September, I think it’s a great position. At the moment, simply waiting in cash for the month of September has you up 1.9% over the Spiders since the end of August.

Cash Since August 31st

 With everyone in a hot panic over a measily 25 BPS, I think that this month, of all months, cash is the place to be.  

If that’s the case, I definitely won’t be looking to purchase anything for income this week.

The link to the Google Drive Spreadsheet that you can view, that we will edit, build upon and refer to over time can be found at this link.

We continue the Sharpe Income project with this next entry.
