Past performance does not guarantee future results. You should not rely on any past performance as a guarantee of future investment performance. Unit values and investment returns will fluctuate. Investors are cautioned that data based on less than five years’ experience may not be sufficient to establish a track record on which investment decisions can be based.

Let’s hear what he has to say about his trading/investing strategy:

“I’m interested in the technology companies that create the best future for everyone.
My coping strategy is simple. Due to the volatility of the tech market, it’s easy to pinpoint when to buy low, and sell at the appropriate times. It’s not a 100% strategy, so I’ll hold stocks for a longer time should they be stagnant or lose a bit of money.
I’m primarily a long-term investor, so profits will come slow and steady.”

He currently holds a Risk Score of 4.

How do we calculate our risk score?

Let’s have a look at his current portfolio:

The first pie chart below shows the high level asset allocation. When you break this down you will see that Mr. DeCruz has built a great portfolio.

He also copies @StrategicTrader with 1.8% of his account, while the rest of his equity is invested in US stocks.

All of his account is invested, however due to his diversification his Risk Score remains very low.
