It's that time of the month again! A few days late but here's my monthly update for April. In general markets rose slightly with gains between 0.3 and 1%. On a daily basis the fluctuations were much higher but in the end the results are average I guess. However the US dollar lost grounds against the Euro which had its effect on my portfolio. Roughly 80% of my portfolio is valued in USD. In the table below I have presented some benchmark indicators of general market indices and my own dividend growth portfolio.
|Indicator||As of 31-3||As of 30-4||% change|
|S&P 500 Total Return||3.805||3.842||+1,0%|
|Dow Jones Industrials Total Return||35.767||35.927||+0,4%|
|Portfolio value||€ 25.407||€ 24.833||-2,3%|
