Overall my portfolio is up 0.05% since last month. For comparison my TI Index is up 1.22%, the DOW is up 2.08% and the TSX is up 2.78%. My investments are up but performed poorly against the TSX, DOW and TI Index.

During the month I sold my low volatility US (XMU.TO) and EAFE (XMI.TO) funds, replacing with a TSX index fund (XIU.TO) and an S&P500 index fund (XSP.TO). I also swapper out the ZAG bond ETF for XBB. The low volatility funds were underperforming. I kept the low volatility Global fund (XMW.TO) to provide diversity.

No real winners or losers this month. Flat.

Winners include … everything. Now that I moved away from individual stocks I’m seeing most of my investments moving in tandem; bonds sometimes diverging in risk on/off periods.
