DIYQuant bought some gold
I took some profit and divested into gold. Not the gold miner stock or ETF, it is the real physical gold which can be bought from UOB. If you have read my last year's end of year report, I mentioned that I have already paid off my mortgages which is my final debt on hand. So it is time to diverse into some other less risky asset class. Some say I should have bought Bitcoins which is deems as the new gold. Nah, since it for diversification and to keep for long term, I still prefer something I can touch and has been deemed worthy for a long time. Even if the whole internet world are to go down, I will still have my gold.

Trading becomes harder as the total capital grows
Actually, it is a good problem. Now that my portfolio has more than doubled, the amount invested in each stock need to be doubled assuming total reinvestment of profit (theoretically). It is not easy when it comes to low volume stocks or penny stocks. One way is to increase the maximum number of stocks the portfolio can hold or extend the strategy to some other markets (eg HKSE).

Side hustle has taken most of my time in 2021
By right, side hustle should be as per what the name implies, a side hustle. But this year, my this side hustle (not related to trading/investing though) is taking away most of my time. Despite the lucrative remuneration, it is taking a toll on me and I am not sure if this can sustain in the long run. Fortunately, I have someone to help manage the system. And with system trading, there is no need to really do any research on stocks. It is to simply following what the system buy and sell. 

Crystal-balling attempt for 2022
Now that 2021 is over, next is my attempt to forecast what could be in store in 2022 based on system's analysis. Take note that the system is designed to be risk averse, meaning it will carry an umbrella whenever there is dark cloud in the horizon. As of this writing, the system is close to 100% cash. It came to me as a surprise as well, given that STI did rather well and SPY recently hit all time high. But given now that the Feds are dialing back on the easy money policy due to the rising inflation and is planning to increase rates starting early next year, it seems reasonable to be on risk off mode for the time. And I always listen to my system... trade with care.
