Portfolio Value Update - September 2021

Welcome back to my blog. I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the beginning of autumn. September is now behind us and it’s time to report my monthly progress. But before I continue with my monthly reporting, I got some pleasant news from my stock broker. My stock broker eliminated the trading fees so now I can trade for free. I used to pay $6.95 per trade and I would wait until I have at least $1,000 in the account to buy stocks, but now I can reinvest my dividends faster because of commission-free trades.

Portfolio Value
In September, my portfolio value decreased by $3,152 from $132,960 to $129,808. I’m back to under $130K, but that’s OK because the Canadian market pulled back by 3.5%. My portfolio did very well for the past 15 months except for September. And who knows how the markets will act this month.
