Here comes the June rebalance of the SIA-Style Pension Portfolio (PP).
PP had an appx. 10% equity allocation as of end of May 2020, which is the middle of the Contraction-eligible range for a SIA-style portfolio. As I have mentioned in a more detailed description of the current state of markets in my rebalancing post of the Global Leaders Portfolio (GLP), the volatility has been mostly contained by continous efforts of both the Fed and the Trump administration and macro data do show positive surprises recently. Even though the resurgence of the Covid-10 cases in some of the US states is still worrying for the markets, the general mood is to buy the dips.
I have effectively purchased both SPY and EEM for $4k each this month, to adjust the equity allocaiton of the PP closer to the maximum 20% treshold.
The anchors of the GLP performed as follows in June:
TLT changed only slightly, adding 21bps for the month. Stabilisation on the global markets caused less of a demand for safe havens like long-term US Treasuries.
GLD gained 2,74% in June. Actually, as of June 30th, Gold sport price got pennies away form the very crutial long-term resistance level of $1800/ounce. Below please see a 20-year graph of Gold (XAU):
Portfolio holdings are traded at the closing price on the rebalancing day presented by www.morningstar.com (which may differ from official closing prices given by appropriate stock exchanges).
Current structure of the GLP can be found on Portfolios page.
Total Personal Return since inception (TPR) o GLP as of close 30th June 2020: +1,3%.
Next update in a month.
