I do this all the time! So, the earliest time the market (VTI) closed at today's value was back in November of 2014, 2 years ago.

I look at this and think "well, it's like I got a two year bonus on investing for every dollar I put in now"

I know it's best not to be emotional, but I look at things like this.... I guess I'm weird. I don't really act on em.

Given that your name is "dividendman", you must take joy that dividends have rise in those two years, so effective yields today are higher?

Haha, yes, that too! And I got dividends during that time.

Actually the moniker "dividendman" came from back when I picked dividend stocks and thought I was a genius. Now I just index. I do still like dividends though!
