The main increase has been in Bitcoin with my holding (200 units is equivalent to 1 Bitcoin) increasing in value by 59% and this is over 10% below the peak value.  Bitcoin is the future of financial transactions.  This will be an anathema to many who are professionals in the banking world, but the onslaught of crypto-currency cannot be halted. It may come as a bit of a surprise to many traditional investors to learn that with the sabre-rattling missile firing of North Korea last week, while stock markets wobbled, Bitcoin rose to a record high of almost US$5,000 per bitcoin. The price has slipped since Saturday 2nd September to just over US$4,300 as I write this, but I cannot see it dropping more than 30% below that all-time high. Where will it end up?  I can see Bitcoin hitting US$10,000+ before the end of 2018.
