Income and Expenses, Savings Rate for Q3 2015

October has passed already more than half, and 2015 is left only a few months. This year has so far been very lucrative for me, including a few nice surprises in the form of additional dividends. So now is the time to look at how I managed during the third quarter, and how my journey towards financial independence is progressing. As I mentioned in my first income / expenditure report, I will make a summary on a quarterly basis, because my months in the case of income are very different. This will give me a better view of the overall situation and hopefully will inspire some of my blog readers.

Recent Sell - Gazprom OAO



On Wednesday, October 7, I sold all my shares of Gazprom.


I bought those shares in the summer of 2012 for $ 8.95 and now I sold them $ 4.45. In three years, the value of the shares lost about half. There are many different causes, low commodity prices, international politics etc. My loss of this adventure came to € 1090.58. When I take into account the dividends received during the three-year € 127.21, the total loss is € 963.37. This defeat can I reduce previous gains on the sale of this year and to lower my rate payable by the capital gains tax. 

Taking a small loss was the main reason to sell Gazprom's shares, secondly, I do not think Gazprom's a very good dividend payer in the future, and I also wanted to reduce the political risk of my holdings.
