Great dividends for April. Unfortunately however, the financial markets dropped a bit this month. Spent a lot more money than I usually do on eating out because there were some rare occasions, like going drinking on my friend’s bday, and taking some relatives out to White Spot. One way I managed to save a few dollars on food is by ordering water instead of a soft drink or alcohol. Also, taking people out to lunch is usually cheaper than dinner. The VIX index ,  which is like a fear index of how worried investor’s are, jumped up more than 6% today. This is a good sign if you are thinking about getting into the market now. I have a couple grand sitting in a savings account now. But I would wait until this index reaches 20 before adding to my portfolio again.
