Thanks @Trifele - I recently read Financial freedom by grant sabatier and there was a quote from the mad fientist- "It's worth any sacrifice to get there."  Pedal to the metal.

Sounds like you are seriously on FIRE @Icecreamarsenal haha -- what's your 'number' and do you plan to RE?

Hey @Trifele -it's been a bit of a moving target, but currently my number is 1.5 invested throwing off 60k/yr (at 0% tax rate, right?)
I'd like to retire to something, but I haven't quite figured out what that is.

Alright, just starting out in this thread - hit $502k in investment accounts last month for the first time! Started tracking in Jan 2017 and was at $186k in investment accounts there, so 48 months to go $316k. Goal is to get to $1M in the same amount of time or less!

Just (re)graduated from the 250k-500k thread as the value increase of our rental property just pushed us our overall investments over 500k. Finished 2020 with 501k investments and a NW sitting above 700k.

The objective for 2021 is for the investment portfolio to reach 625k for a 125k increase. Let's go!

One question - a lot of us seem to use the first day of the month vs the last day of the month to track investments. Is there a reason for that? I historically calculated everything at the end of each month...

Cheers

I do on the first of the month because it takes a little while for my accounts to update for the trading the day before.  I'm usually in bed for the night when that happens.  My number includes the last day of the previous month, but not that first day.  I should probably label it with the last day, like "12/31" to be accurate, but whatever . . . :)

Market is fighting back this year.  With a couple big purchases this month our net worth only went up $1k (and that's with a big signing bonus and the stimulus).

Big yikes.

- Had to pay both our self assessment tax bills this month
- Income was lower as December invoice was only for 14 days

This month I saved $31,092 and went up by only $24,500. Most of the loss was in the last day (~2% of stash) so we'll see what happens in February (though I think long term enough it doesn't really matter).

These are starting to seem like play numbers to me.. feels almost like they can't be real they're so huge; so that's a fun thing to start wrapping my head around. Market volatility is starting to make daily gains / losses astronomical if compared to my net worth only a couple of years ago.

I will endeavor to continue acting poor even if it's hard to feel that way anymore. (Poor is a bad choice of word, I understand I was never poor in any sense of the word)

Only tracking personal liquid stash and do not include my wife's savings or any Real Estate equity at this point

Just checking to see if I was the only who had backward movement the last week of January.  Couldn't be just me, right?  We all have the same investments, for the most part :)

First post in this thread.  I have always looked at my portfolio from an annual lens so this should be interesting to watch the next 10 years grow by the month.  Thought I would start at the turn of the century for reference and you can see what an investment portfolio made up with a high percentage of rental real estate looked like through the recession.  I am now shooting for about 50/50 real estate to liquid equities and paying off all mortgages in the next 10 years.  Primary home equity and personal property not included.

Not a bad month of gains. Let todayís growth pile on since my big 401k contribution from last week didnít go through yet.

I started a new job 2 weeks ago. It was a bit of a pay cut but more job security. If I donít spend stupidly I should be able to save $10k-$12k/mo. I got a LOT of big purchases out of the way last year so aside from a baby and possibly moving from an apartment to renting a house (rent wonít change too much) I donít see any major cost increases.

If we can get around 6%-8% market growth this year, I should be able to crest $1MM.. What a year this would be.. First baby (after 2.5 years of trying) new job, new town, first house (although renting) and crossing that $1MM mark.. I think the baby is about the only thing in the world that will top my pride in crossing that $1MM..

Gains from last month are some of the savings, but it looks like the first day of February was pretty good (and more than the gains of last month combined).

In response to the Gamestop comment:

Meeting your financial goals does not require market-beating returns. Meeting your financial goals can happen with below-market risk. You may have a very strong opinion about these companies being over-valued or under-valued. Sometimes, getting the right answer requires more study than you can give. Sometimes, the whims of the market can enable the wrong to triumph over the right for long enough that people who got it right do not win.

You can stay on the bench with regard to trading these companies and still prosper.

Just checking to see if I was the only who had backward movement the last week of January.  Couldn't be just me, right?  We all have the same investments, for the most part :)

Yep, am there alongside you. Last 3 days of the month wiped out the January gains, which have now come back in the first 3 days of Feb!

Dems the markets.
