Check out this curated list of Sweat Your Assets monthly content for September 2023 (Monthly Digest #33).


An eye view of Stock Market Indicators, as of September 29, 2023:

[ this month | previous month | % changes over five years ].  

  • VIX (volatility index) – the fear gauge: 17.28 |13.92 | +16.53% (Looking at historical data, fear perception is still low. However, it has increased compared to last month).
  • S&P 500: 4,288 | 4,514.87 | + 48.60% (Small corrections compared to the end of August, however we are still near record level high).
  • S&P 500 P/E Ratio: 25.74 (Sep-2023) | 25.73 (Aug-2023). (Historically, the median value is 17.86, with a typical range between 19.33 and 27.91). 
  • BND – Vanguard Total Bond Market Index Fund: USD 69.78 | 71.63 |  -10.27% (The bond market naturally suffers from high-interest rates).
  • VNQ – Vanguard REITS – Real Estate: USD 75.66 | 82.99 |  -3.25%
  • GLD – SPDR Gold Shares: USD 171.45 | 180.32 | +50.66%

August stock market gains were partially lost in September. While I remain invested, I am increasingly cautious and ready for upcoming corrections and lower asset prices. I cautiously increase cash and cash alternative reserves through my savings.

Family time | work-life balance | sweat your assets

Work-life balance is a well-known concept and definitely a slippery target to look for. With high probability, you are the breadwinner. You might feel inspired to fulfill “family duties,” providing security,  comfort, and well-being to your partner, kids, and loved ones.
