This chart shows the price performance of the Income, Balanced and Growth funds.
Along with the rest of the stock market, the funds have risen gradually during the latter part of the year.
This chart shows the fractional month-on-month change of each of the funds.
The performance isn't stellar, but I haven't lost money. I've been buying units every month this year, and the price has gradually since July.
Since I started investing in the Streetwise Balanced fund in February, my total investment of $4183.3 ($100 in February plus $408.33 every month after that) is now worth $4390.22. That's an increase of 4.9% - a bit better than a savings account.
By the way, if you're considering opening your first account with ING Direct, then use this reader-posted Orange Key
You'll get a $25 bonus when you make an initial deposit of $100. You'll also get your own Orange Key, so you can make your own referrals. Every time someone opens an account with your Orange Key, both you and the account opener get $25.
There are bonuses for every 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 people you register, and you could make as much as $2000.
When you get your Orange Key, post it in a blog comment and I'll feature it in a new post.
