Why measure as closely as possible to commonly accepted measuring methodology? This is to indicate to ourselves that we are active or DIY retail investors/traders who are continuously looking to revise our strategies and methods to achieve better performance than investing in some ETFs or Funds or doing CPF Top Up; otherwise why waste our time, energy and resources doing it. For true performance measuring; cash as war chest is obviously part of our portfolio. When cash as war chest is fairly large and hold continuously over several years during the whole measuring period; it will drag down portfolio performance under current low interest rate environment. Bo pian!
Another way to wow our readers and to inspire them is to show them large number! Did you see that landed property or Ferrari behind me?
