Progress to Financial Independence- January 2019

The Market Recovery What a turnaround! The domestic equity market almost completely recovered in January from the drastic drop in December. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't relieved by the recovery, especially since Whitney and I haven't worked for over 6 months now! I even came out ahead from the drop due to … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- January 2019

Progress to Financial Independence- December 2018

Mr. Market is Mad! Whew, December was a rough month for my net worth. The S&P 500 was down over 13% during the month, which makes it the worst month ever since I started investing seriously in 2015. Luckily I was overweight in cash, so my portfolio wasn't hit as hard as it could have … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- December 2018

Progress to Financial Independence- October 2018

Whew, October was a rough month for equities and a bit of a scary month for me financially!

My portfolio definitely took a hit, but I didn't lose any sleep over it since the … Continue reading Progress to Financial Independence- October 2018
