Managing Personal Finance

There is situated huge opportunity if you begin investing while you are still young. Assume you start investing at age 28 years. Till your retirement of say 58 years. This gives you 30 years long investment period. If you make investments only 10,000 Rs. 12% and forget about it, you will get huge Rs 3 Lacs simple interest will offer only Rs however. 36000. Therefore, it is prudent to start with regular monthly saving in bank or investment company recurring deposit predicated on your keeping power. Rule of 72 can help you find out in just how many years, your cash will double. Never keep a great deal in conserving accounts. Transfer funds to a Fixed Deposit account, which gives 4% higher interest than savings account. Even 46 times set deposit is ok if you want early liquidity.

That is a 37.5 percent tag. After careful looking through securitisations I cannot find a single securitisation where I think Freddie will eventually lose above 30 % – and 25 percent is more common. On that count number there is certainly 8 billion which should run back again through the accounts as they have marked-to-market and the losses will be much less bad as the market.

The model I have shown in Part VI calculated loss and income from the current position of Freddie’s balance sheet. However here we may actually have found another 8 billion improvement on Freddie’s preliminary balance sheet – that is the real position of Freddie Mac is 8 billion better than I modeled in Part VI. Freddie Mac reckons that about 10.4 billion of the losses they have booked are “temporary impairment” and really should reverse. It is plausible – but my 8 billion is a lesser quantity. Cumulatively Freddie’s accounts show about 31 billion of temporary impairment – losses that they think will reverse.

Outside subprime I have made no work to test that amount – but it seems high to me. Moreover, a few of this impairment appears to keep coming back through the currently inflated revenue line and I really do not want to double count this benefit. I noted in Part II that Fannie and Freddie had incurred their major loss to date on the Private Label Securities. However I also asserted that Fannie and Freddie picked private-label securities that were much better than the market – that is verified and alas it didn’t stop them from incurring large losses.

A careful look at some bad securitisations suggest that this loss is more than full provided for (and hence Freddie specifically is slightly more solvent than this series suggests). I say thanks to the many people who have wished me well, inquired about my broken collarbone and – in some cases – asked how my treatment fitted in with my analysis of Australian socialized medication. The short answer is that I’m going well. My break is one of the 90 percent that current practice suggests do not require a surgical pinning. THEREFORE I have put my arm in a sling, took huge dosages of painkillers, and waited for the bone to mend.

The painkillers aren’t pleasant. There are lots of side-effects outlined on Wikipedia including elation, hallucinations, itchiness, constipation, and sweating. I seem to have all the unpleasant side-effects and none of the pleasurable ones. I cannot fathom why people take these drugs recreationally. The painkillers are much better than the pain – which was overwhelming however. I have yet to reduce the painkiller doses – but I am expecting the side-effects to be unpleasant when I really do so. I am going to write this up later for those that are interested – especially how my experience fits in with my views on socialized medicine.

This is an identical pattern to last year. From another true point of view my Sharpe Ratio since inception continues to be working at around 0.98; whilst for the AHL benchmark within the same period it’s 0.86 (without risk-free rate). Digging more it appears like the winning industries were Volatility and bonds deeply; with losses in Energy and FX. On an individual instrument level gainers were: Palladium, BTP, VSTOXX, and Nasdaq and losers: Soybeans, Gas, Yr bonds, and JPYUSD Korean 3. Classic picture of a long up trend which we ride until it finishes.

After that the signal isn’t strong enough to warrant a position. This season Oddly enough Yellow metal was not a profitable market, showing the advantages of intra-sector diversification. A more nuanced example here; the system fundamentally benefits from two clear trends each long lasting a matter of weeks, and then bides its time in between.

The price shows a steady downward trend; partly because of the rolldown impact that are specially pronounced in all marketplaces; and because of levels did decline to surprisingly low levels (as I discussed at the time). Then in February there was a pronounced spike in all that took a lot of individuals by surprise. Well, basically I ran out of margin head room, and because VIX and V2X were very margin hungry I closed my positions in them.

So a bit of good fortune there. The bad news Now. Classic stuff in which a choppy market leads to gradual losses as we get whipsawed constantly. The other losing marketplaces show similar pictures therefore I won’t bore you. That is an identical picture to last year: a slight under-performance against the benchmark. Unlike this past year the statistics here already show the rebalancing I did at calendar year end; as I mentioned previously this included a further reallocation from underperforming bonds to equities away.
