Stocks vs Crypto July / Early August 2022 Update

It’s been about three months since we have last updated this, if you would like context to what this is, go ahead and click this post to read about when this all started. for any regular readers, welcome back.

[first post here](

​

but if you don’t want to click: tldr, we made 4 portfolios, $50k each, 3 were stock portfolios, one was a crypto one. compare, contrast, personal finance solved, whatever.

​

[starting position](

Everything’s in red, still. And at first everything was so in the red i was confused,

then i realized google had their stock split, gamer-stop had theirs, which basically meant i had to 10x the amount of google stock we own, and 4x for gaming-go… Oh, and Facebook is no longer a company, which was a lot easier to solve that problem.. just had to change the Wallstreet stock search from “FB” to “meta” in the function.

​

so let’s look at the statistics.

​

​

[overall](

for a comparison coinNotbased stock is down 84%, uber is down 65%, tesla is down 28%, and the overall dow jones is down 11%. we’re down about 25%. Not, awful.

​

​

[each portfolio](

Portfolio 1 is trying its best, portfolio 2 about the same, portfolio 3 peaked in highschool, portfolio 4 never really peaked considering the risk of the assets we invested into.

what’s interesting is portfolio 1 had a lower high and a lower low than portfolio 2, even though i meant portfolio 1 to be safer than portfolio 2, it may just be an anomaly currently though, both their bottoms are only a few tens of dollars apart.

​

​

[each portfolio on one graph](

in the last year, we’ve seen portfolio 4 underperform nearly every other portfolio. even during the November peak, the portfolio was only second to portfolio 3, which, again did its own thing.

​

​

[overall volatility](

volatility for months was going in waves, and now, still is kinda but we’ve had two long waves, one lasting from November 2021 to April 2022, and another from April 2021 that could be ending now, both negative waves. but it’s nice with all the negativity that overall volatility has been in the positive, although that can easily flip back in the negatives, it’s not like this graph predicts anything, it looks pretty cool though.

​

overall, each portfolio had an original share of 25/25/25/25% of our total balance.

currently, Portfolio 1 has a share of 28%

Portfolio 2 has a share of 28%

Portfolio 3 has a share of 29.8%

Portfolio 4 has a share of 14%.

​

this post isn’t to bash crypto or anything, it’s just laying out the truths of what’s been happening to these risky assets during a hard time in the global economy, the sad answer is the market underperformed during this recession. Maybe it’ll continue to fall and decline, possibly, it has found the bottom, I can’t say for sure.

  1. I appreciate you putting this together. I’m not too surprised that the most volatile assets fell the hardest, but it’s really interesting to see the actual numbers.

  2. Hope you can keep updating these through the bear market and into the next bull. Will be super interesting to see the results on longer time frames!

  4. So one way to look at it is that crypto was either overvalued at the start, or undervalued now compared to the other assets. Your answer to this question might help determine your allocation for upcoming investments.
