Very last post of 2022

It was probably a tough year for every investor out there except a few ones who invest in stuff that moves with lots of unpredictability like mines or shit like that. 

It was tough for me. Not mentally tough because I'm now almost immune against these wide swings (as long as they concern the whole market and not one specific stock). It comes with experience. I think that not any investor can be too emotive otherwise, it won't even work on the short terme. 

For 2022, my portfolio is down by 22.5% while the market (S&P500) is down by 17.8%. 

I've been beaten by almost 5% which is disappointing for me. 

Everybody should track their performance like I do. Because after a few years of underperformance versus the market, anybody should give up investing and buy a fund that reproduces the S&P. I like the stock market, but I don't play that game to become poorer. 

What's the fucking use of investing if it makes you poorer than a path that requires no brain?

Last post of 2022

Jason Del Vicario is a real bully. Always teasing, always trying to intimidate. If he hadn't the perfect body and the best sex appeal in canadian finance, I'd tell him to fuck off. 

He recently told me to stop whining on my blog and start writing again. Yes, he's right. What about whining? Who fucking cares? I don't even care about my own tragedies. Fuck my tragedies, but fuck yours too. Actually, fuck yours much more than mine. 

I don't care about you because I don't even fucking know you exist, you anonymous reader. 

I'll be back in 2023, angrier than ever about life, investment and everything. Because the good thing about sadness is that it sometimes becomes anger and I'm a good anger generator. 

Since it's supposed to be a financial blog, let's just say that my portfolio is down almost 24% so far this year. 

More precisions at the beginning of 2023.
