October 2020 Update
What a month it has been! Work seems to be never ending and am feeling a little burnt out without being able to properly have a break. Life nowadays has been quite routine, waking up, head to work, head home for dinner. Weekends would be where I can recharge by spending time with loved ones and just enjoy the freedom. Looking forward to the block leave in the coming weeks where I have a staycation coming up! Too bad the current situation doesnt allow us to travel but a staycation isnt too bad either.
The market has gone wild perhaps due to the news of Trump being kicked out of the white house and the effectiveness of the covid vaccine. S&P 500 has surpassed its all time high pre covid and Singapore market is also beginning to wake up from its slumber. People were betting that market would rise if Trump were to continue in office and markets to tank if Biden takes over. But reality says otherwise. No one can accurately predict where the market is headed to and this short span of few months shows us that it pays off to stay in the market and ride the volatility. If one were to pull out all his money before the US election and decide to go back in after the elections, he would be beating himself up now.
