Hello, how are you all?
For the week, the portfolio slipped -0.59%. For the year, the result is fine, +87.49% and for November +20.29%. I remain confident in technology companies especially. In the next few days, I intend to add funds to the portfolio and reinforce the main positions. Check it out the portfolio stats https://etoro.tw/2UHOvRc .

(Seeking Alpha) All three major stock market indexes closed at all-time highs Friday as D.C. lawmakers appeared to make progress toward passing a COVID stimulus bill. A weaker than expected rise in November non-farm payrolls had the bad-news-is-good-news effect on equities and interest rates, prompting investors to conclude that the weak numbers will lead to compromise on a near-term relief package. The energy sector was Friday’s runaway leader, capping a big week in response to the OPEC+ agreement for small production hikes starting in January. Long-term interest rates rose, pushing the 10-year Treasury yield up 5 basis points to 0.97%. For the week, the S&P 500 finished up 1.7%, the Nasdaq rose 2.1% and the Dow gained 1%.

Silicon Valley exodus
The coronavirus pandemic has given a number of tech companies an excuse to exit California as many question the high cost of living and the state’s hefty taxes amid a broader shift to remote work. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE:HPE) became the latest to relocate its headquarters from San Jose, California, to Houston, Texas, following a difficult year that generated a full-year loss. Palantir (NYSE:PLTR) recently moved its HQ to Denver from Palo Alto, while Silicon Valley electric carmaker Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) has long-complained about the state’s regulations and is opening a factory in Austin next year. San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo called HPE’s decision “a wake-up call,” saying the region needed to “stop demonizing our tech employers, and start working with them to chart a path to a strong recovery.”
Dow +1.0% to 30,218. S&P 500 +1.7% to 3,699. Nasdaq +2.1% to 12,464. Russell 2000 +1.9% to 1,891. CBOE Volatility Index -0.2% to 20.79.
