- There is three major drivers dragging portfolio worth down – currency wars (EUR, GBP) and oil prices affecting Gazprom & Rosneft evaluation.
- It is expected that many high paid jobs will be axed soon, as existing oil price affects capital expenditure.
- I will wait for the market correction until I start exiting cash.
- Current portfolio generates about 3% after taxes in dividends.
