A review of 2017’s investment

Another year is coming to an end soon and I didn’t seem to have achieved much. The total invested capital increased from $68,016.42 to $84,735.93.

This year, I made a total donation amount of $400 towards Children’s Cancer Foundation, Metta Welfare Fund and KKH Health Fund. Hope the token sum will be able to help some of those in need.

I bought a total of 80.1 grams of gold and 1,088.5 grams of silver for $4,191.09 and $848.64 respectively.
