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.

....

Fairly certain my day trader friend made over a million dollars on Game Stop and a fair chunk on AMC this week......sometime I wonder if I chose the wrong career.......

But did they sell in time? Because itís all paper until they do.

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.

officially here now at a NW of $503,705 after market gains yesterday.

I posted once before a couple months ago about breaking $500k NW but that wasn't correct.  I was using a portion of money that I am no longer calculating towards my NW.  I want NW number to be pure and accurate which I now have.

I misread that as generic *cheetos.  And, likewise, the generic version is never as good.

Getting started on the 2021 numbers.  We are at the mercy of the market but there is a good chance we break 1M NW this year.  February should be solid due to bonuses that will be shoved into investments.

End of      NW           Change

12/13:   $41,032   
12/14:   $106,801    $65,769
12/15:   $197,262    $90,461
12/16:   $276,361    $79,099

12/18:   $394,472    $26,421
12/19:   $560,195    $165,723

12/20:   $840,205    $280,010

01/21:   $858,525    $18,320

I am tracking this race in USD, but I squeaked past a notable (to me) milestone this morning when my NW crossed $1,000,000 CAD--the currency of my former and hopefully future home. The last year or so has been a slog, as the buying power of the US dollar has fallen and acted as a headwind, and so it's nice to finally check that box.

Excited to graduate from this thread.  Looking back we hit $500k on 6/6/18, and crested $1m invested assets yesterday!

Next big milestone is for taxable account (currently ~$150k) to equal mortgage at $498k- not sure if we'll pay it off then, but more comfortable with that than sending extra payments.

Congrats. We are currently at 530k and have similar plans re our mortgage after reaching FI. Do you mind saying how much of that gain in the 2.5 years were your contributions?

It was almost half/half contributions vs. gains.

We max out both of our 401ks annually, but exceeded income limits for Roth in 2019 and 2020, so we focused on taxable instead which we started with $10k in August of 2018.

Sold our condo in fall 2019 and rented for a year while we built new construction (condo proceeds were equal to 20% downpayment, cross country moving expenses, and new furnishings). During that time, our rent was pretty cheap so our savings rate was 50%+ for ~10mo.

We've been in new home ~6mo but just refi'd 30y fixed at 2.5%, so in no hurry to pay extra.

Might graduate out of this thread sometime this year. It took about 3 years to get to 500k, and maybe about 4 by the time we double that to get to 1000k, wonder if it'll only take another 4 years to get to 2000k... Actually I expect it will take more like 5.

A little late but props to @talltexan for the reminder the other day that its not ALL ABOUT MONEY!  I have a good job where I get to work with my hands every day (when I haven't had this type of work, I've been unhappy) and I know I wouldn't be happy if I WAS a full time day trader (no knocks to day traders - you all have serious cajones and I'd love to learn more about how you do it!) Course this is easier to say after a good couple weeks of market gains : )

I am grateful that something in my comment resonated with you! I have a job that requires that I stay current on macroeconomic conditions, which includes asset prices, so I cannot ignore things like Gamestop (though I can try to be disciplined about my own investing).

Welcome all the new posters!!

I love the way these numbers are going! I'm hoping to be in the 600's by next month.
I just started a new 12 month position with a 20% payrise so most of that will be going  to savings & a bit to some work around the yard.

Hey whatís going on everyone? Iím staking my claim here on the way to 1M. I tallied up all my liquid cash and investments this weekend and Iím at $855,000.

My wife and I both expect to work from home for the foreseeable future so our savings rate should be pretty stellar for 2021. As long as we donít see an extended period of negative returns, we should cross the 1M mark within 12 months.

Total FIRE savings goal is 1.8-2M which I hope to see in 5-7 years. (Currently early 40ís).

Wow the volatility continues. After being up £20k last week for the month, things have now dropped to £1k this week.

Wondering where weíll be at when I do the end of month update on Sunday...

Kitchen renovation is paid for - just about all that's left is to buy floor and trim for the living room! Hopefully I'll start ramping up faster now.

Paid off the last of my student loans from law school. Feel great about it. Debt-free other than our home.

@OurTown can you feel it? Must be exciting to be that close.

This month I saved 26,100 and my net worth went up by 37,946. Trending in the right direction, I believe I'll graduate earlier than expected (jinxing the market with that call).

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

Rich as rich can be.  I'm not sure I'll ever stop being shocked at how much money we have.  Maybe when we start spending it in four months...
