November 2021 and the beginning of December 2021 ended up as my worst performance so far.

2021 Week 47 investing and trading report

Wow, the end of the month got pretty wacky! We have received news about a new Covid variant and “although experts do not know yet if it will cause more or less severe COVID-19 compared to other strains” investors already started shooting themselves, jumping out of the windows, and selling their wives and kids off.
