Picks 08/02 – 08/06

Another weekly review of my investing effort. You can review how my portfolios were doing this last week, review my Trading account, which is my aggressive portfolio where I buy individual stocks, my ROTH IRA retirement account which is my dividend investing portfolio (to which I am focusing the most right now) and my Lending Club account, P2P lending investment which is growing very well.

I have nothing much to say about this account this week. I am planning on rebuilding it and saving money for further trading, or better say investing and getting this account closer to Reverse Scale Strategy principles. The performance of this account is now more likely like the performance of Visa (V) stock, which was driven by market sentiment and news which can be referenced to as misleading, however many investors were scared of them enough to push this stock up and down during the last week. The next week I will continue on saving money on this account, however the main focus is still building my ROTH IRA portfolio.
