I have been investing in for exactly 18 months i am 27 years of age.
today i wanted to see how well i have done over the past 18 months. I knew i didn't do too well as id hoped as in the beginning i brought high sold low, nevertheless i got a grip of my emotions, so today i checked my portfolio value it was up by 7% however the fees i had accrued over the past 18 months was 9% of my account value so i am minus 2% overall.
can someone help me out here, what am i doing wrong? any comments would be appreciated
