In April we successfully completed the account switch, taking great care to ensure that the new account was capitalized with the same amount that the old account was closed with. We can therefore continue to show a constant return since the start of the account, although unfortunately, this is no longer possible in a long-term chart.

The activity in our real money account, in particular the closing of all stock positions, was above average. The new account has now been completely reorganized and again contains some interesting investments that were also discussed in our live webinar.
