New country, chaos in the UK, same ol portfolio
I’ve gotten pretty good at doing nothing with my portfolio, but as each day passes, it’s getting harder to know if that is the best thing going forwards, especially with interest rates trending upwards.
We’re settling into our new life, in a gorgeous area, but the fabled Australian weather has been a bit of a disappointment in the first 3 months of the trip.
Kids are settled into school, my new job has some great people, the UK increasingly looks like a failing state to me. We’re having turmoil in trying to figure out whether this Australian move should be a short-term, medium-term, or long-term move.
With all the business of moving country, I’ve not been focused on my portfolio as perhaps I should be - there are a couple of changes I have considered, but it feels premature to discuss them before I feel I’ve done the work.
Adventures in FI
I understand that life makes you less focused on your portfolio. Personally I've also had a "cooldown" period where I stopped investing. But this may be one of the most valuable markets to take advantage of, and if you're not feeling like doing the research yourself, why not just go on a community like jika.io or etoro and follow someone you trust to get your information from. You can literally see his real portfolio so you know he is valid.
