Updated Apr 2019
Stashaway: Started in Oct 2017 with 60/40 portfolio on monthly contributions. Switched to 80+ equity during the trade war & SGD returns shot up to 11% (from 3 - 4% previously)
Question: Hypothetically if i knew a market crash would come in a month or so, would it be wise to lower my risk profile OR maintain risk profile and continue (or even pump) DCA-ing. Is it possible for the portfolio to get wiped permanently (due to some weird rebalancing) ?
I've been using for almost a year... all the while hardly went above 4%... after i set the new risk level... within a month went up to 11%... I should be happy since its earning me moolah but somewhere Im afraid... what goes up fast and hard also comes down fast and hard... For example... Cryptos...

I started 2 months ago, and recently changed to the most aggressive portfolio on Stashaway. Currently up by around 2% :)
I use autowealth, put in one lump sum since end July. But I think I just broke even from my initial capital that I put in.. I seem to be barely hanging in there 😂 hopefully given a longer period of time I might get better returns! My risk level was level 3, which is the balanced portfolio 60-40 if I'm not wrong.

Stashaway since about 2 year ago, at 4.2% average at the old risk profile and adjusted to the newer higher risk profile since 2018 at one lump sum.
