Alternative Investment Portfolio Performance – June 2021

Robinhood 101 - Imgflip

Alternative data has become a bigger trigger for investment decision than fundamental. Hence Twitter and Reddit are the new go to places for getting information

Even the broad market is just following macro data while ignoring stock valuation.Global PMI data and employment data was better than expected.Hence the positive narrative drove equities Up. Though the near term biggest fear in market is of a mutant virus which can play spoilsport to the economic revival

My Alternative Investment Portfolio Performance

Bitcoin Memes (@bitcoin_memes_) | Twitter

The past month saw Bitcoin suffer, ending down around 6%. This was a result of Jitters in traditional markets, intensified Chinese regulatory action (including a shutdown of all mining activity), UK’s financial regulator clamping down on Binance, and environmental issues all contributed towards the sell-off. However Bitcoin Mining Council announced that the Bitcoin mining electricity mix was 56% sustainable in Q2 2021. In addition,Elon Musk has agreed to discuss Bitcoin publicly with Twitter and Square founder Jack Dorsey on July 21st (BTC Traders mark the date!)

International Equity

Surveying the recent stretch of records for the S&P 500 Index, you’d be tempted to think that when it comes to markets, everything is awesome. This is because Inflation fears have eased, economic indicators are strengthening and the Federal Reserve remains accommodative.

However Investors are taking risk off the table as the fast-spreading delta variant of the coronavirus causes fresh outbreaks in many parts of the world.Honestly I feel a forever expensive reset of market is a bigger risk.In the long run you would be taking so much risk for paltry dividend along with reinvestment risk, new future investment risk !
