I just cam by to see how long it's taken other people here to get from 250 to 500. Seems like the average is about 3-4 years?

I think I hit 250 somewhere around mid-2016. Took a year sabbatical away from work last year. I think we'll hit 500 sometime mid to late next year. So 3 years with not working one of those year.

I keep going back and forth on how much longer I want to work for money. There are a few irons in the fire that might help me make my decision. Looking at an estimation chart going from 500k to 1.2mil take about 8-12 years which means I don't need to keep working in my current position. I want to find a job that I can travel with/ work abroad in. I think 500k before I'm 30 is enough to say that I should be finding work that I want to do instead of going to full FIRE.

This losing streak is brutal.   Good buying opportunity,  but really unpleasant to look at.

I hope it stays down for at least another week - I get paid next week so my 401k contribution hits then, lol

Mine hit today. Dh's will hit on Monday. I'm okay with the ability to buy more shares than last week.

If this trend continues for October, I値l be impressed if anyone in this group with the majority of their NW in stocks has a positive NW gain for the month!

I am in a very very similar position, just a tad behind. I should hit 500k when I知 just shy of 32, I知 30 now. I took an 8 month sabbatical between late 2016 and 2017 and it was a real eye opener/life changer. Our fire number is also a bit higher - probably around 2 mil.

Like you - once we池e around 500k-700k I plan to cut back to only working 3-4 months a year while the Stache grows. After we do that for a while, we値l have a better idea if we want to keep doing that for 10-15 years, or I値l be able to pretty easily go back to work full time and probably be fully FIRE by 40ish or so.

Agreed.  I would have to have put in about 60K this month in order to be up.

Yup, I know I'll be down overall. I just hope I stay over $250k because I really (really) don't to return to that last thread! I think I burned some bridges with my pew pew pew finger guns exit from that one.

Just remember to remove that shirt and shoes you put on if you have to go, and returning means you buy us another beer... thread hopping is expensive (but at least stocks are cheap)  ;)

@Nick_Miller ah, our rivalry begins in earnest then. I'm already bumped out of the group, so you must have a steadier allocation.

@Jaayse, like I just kept the shirt and shoes on like some kind of...fancy man? Yeah right, that's what I did.

@GUNDERSON, rivalry? rivalry? The Packers and Bears are a rivalry, my friend, not this nonsense. And yeah my allocation is steady. It's smooth and steady and beautiful, and I'm not ashamed to admit it to any of you people!

(I am really trying to channel Nick here, I feel like I did it)

Certainly could have been worse. I'm surprised by how little I care... Remains to be seen if seeing the numbers goes down bothers me more if the downward trend continues. I'd like to think it won't but...

I feel similarly - this is the first significant decline since I really started investing and I feel rather detached from the numbers, mostly hoping it doesn't immediately bounce back up because I'm still relatively early in my accumulation phase.

If I was desperate to retire soon, I may feel differently? Hard to say..

Detached! That was the word I was looking for earlier. That's exactly how I feel. Because like you, I'm early in the accumulation phase. So... ***shrug*** Market will do what the market does. In the mean time, I'll just keep sticking money in.

Sept. 2018  $252,544.08
Nov.  2018 $248,197.15

(I skipped Oct, as we went from middle-of-the month reporting in Sept to first-of-the-month accounting for Nov)

And I am not leaving. I have come too far. I am squatting here, like some sort of...squatter. We should pop back up over $250K come Dec 1st unless the market drops another 3-4% in Nov.

my Transamerica account won't sync with Mint the last month or so. I consider it good timing, because to check in now is much harder, and I'd rather not know! Today it wouldn't even send me the security code to get in online, so I'm giving up. Will do them both next month!

All things considered - not terrible. I spent $1k more than my goal which sucks. Stock market dropped a lot, but I still saved $11k-$12k so that痴 what I need to be looking at.

I usually keep a good sized emergency fund, but I致e been slowly dumping extra into the market this month.

I became eligible for an HSA today and will max it out ($6900) this month, and then also have it set up to max out for Jan/Feb of 2019. I知 also right on the cusp of being able to contribute to a regular (non-backdoor) Roth IRA for the year, so as soon as I do my taxes I値l get that info before I file them. I will most definitely be able to contribute next year, so plan on making those early in the year as well.

2018
January 1-         232,213
February 1 -       245,447
March 1 -           242,789
April 1 -             246,140
May 1 -              318,398 (sold house)
June 1 -             328,870
July 1 -              342,159
August 1 -          354,936
September 1 -    366,727
October 1 -        374,465
November 1 -     361,296

Well, I don't hold out any hope of hitting 400k before the end of the year now, and it does not help that I've been doing a lot of travel.  However, the travel is amazing and I have an opportunity to cheaply travel Europe, so I'm taking advantage of it anyways.

My (admittedly aggressive) index fund investments all got slammed.  But since I'm a buyer at this stage, the downturn is a good thing.  Only wish I had more cash to invest right now.  Hoping the market goes down (or at least stays about where it is) until I get my 401k match and annual bonus in January.

Lost about 6% this month and am back to mid July levels. How far back in time did you go? The hardest part about the minor sale is the fact that we have never had a tighter cash flow. I actually had to cash in some stock just before the downturn thanks to unexpected education costs (turns out public school doesn't work for everyone and my ideal dreams about public education are smashed)

August 1, 2018 - $393,286
September 1, 2018 - $406,838       + $13,552 m/m
October 1, 2018 - $412,660           +5,821
November 1, 2018 - $409,593        -$3,067

I haven't had a completely negative month since I started tracking in 2015. I guess that's good news, as i'm growing and gaining more investments that can start making bigger differences than paycheques.

Oof, rough month. In addition to the market being shitty, our company stock crept up to an all-time high last month, and it's since fallen back to more moderate prices. However, our earnings call this week beat expectations, so it should trend back up!

If this trend continues for October, I値l be impressed if anyone in this group with the majority of their NW in stocks has a positive NW gain for the month!

This. I don't understand how so many people continue to show positive gains during a market dip if their investment strategy relies on index funds.

Because many of us are still in the accumulation phase, so we keep putting money into the market, even during dips.  So the market may dip, but net worth still increases due to savings from income.

Some people have crazy high incomes here.....actually most of the folks on the forum are self selected upper middle/upper class households with dual incomes.

Very true but how many people have gotten the confidence needed from forums such as this one only to make their income situation better either by asking for raises or making moves in the job market. by no means should this forum be considered a representation of the population, the crowd is heavily skewed towards the top x% financially savvy folks out there.
