-         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.
