Portfolio Value Update - January 2021

Welcome back to my blog. January 2021 was an exciting month. The WallStreetBets on reddit coordinated a short squeeze on some of the most shorted stocks. It was entertaining to watch the tug of war between the retail investors and the hedge funds. Usually, the big guys manipulate the markets and take advantage of the swing trades, but this time, probably for the first time in history, retail investors won the war! Eventually the dust will settle, and the big boys will take over. Anyway, let’s get to my January numbers.

Portfolio Value
In January, my stock portfolio value increased by $9,151 and closed at $110,144. I did transfer $6,000 to max out my TFSA contribution room, the rest of the gain came from stock appreciation.
