I'm right around 40% and I voted on the low side.

40% is serious progress!


A couple of years of bad market returns while you continue to invest and you'll suddenly, when the market rebounds, you'll be way higher than you expected!  :)

The 2016 poll I had us at 30-40%, last year at 40-50%, and for 2018, unfortunately, also 40-50%.

That said, as of today (beginning of February), we're in the 50-60% vote. We were there earlier in 2018 as well, but that December drop cost us about $40k.

I'm expecting that for next year we'll be able to bump up again to the 60-70%.

It sure is! Since I've been floating back and forth across the cutoff the past few months, I picked low.

15.3% are FIRED or FI.

And a bunch of people who are making some serious progress towards FIRE.
