Finally had the guts to check our year to date returns ( Except for YE I only do this when I think it will make me smile) Taxable 5.42%, Tax deferred 6.6%. But that's after a poor 2015. AA 55/35/10

Still in accumulation phase. Up in the 401k 9.38% YTD per Fidelity. Major holding in utilities which accounts for majority of the increase. Glad to see that international index finally climbed back into the black this year after an awful start.

Since interest rates are probably going to stay low for the forseable future, staying heavy in electric utility (which is the bond proxy in the stock market and has very good returns). Of course when rates rise, utilities will get slammed.

5.34% ytd. If we trend this way the next six months I wouldn't complain. Sure it's no 30% year like I had a cpl back, but it'll beat inflation. Onward and upwards

Who would? But I have "lost" 1.5% in just the last 2 trading days. That's my spending YTD.

Still up for the year, but how long before the market god takes it all back? Did someone say "Wh***" or something?

It was me. Sorry about that!

My withdrawal replenished celebration lasted a whole 3 days.

I now consider myself slapped down and thoroughly chastened!

Getting the month end numbers as I'll be travelling. Has been an exciting July.

401K is all RNWEX which I'd call a World/EM fund. Also has some US companies. It retreated to +3.39% return YTD in my account. Was +9.67% previous month.

70/30 brokerage (individual stocks, REITs, and muni funds, etc.) is sitting at 9.79% gain mid-day.

But since you are there, what is the Dow at the end of July?

... yeah, that's what I want to know, too. I am guessing it will be 25075.73 .

I will post my numbers after the market closes today. But I already know it will be slightly less than the pre-Brexit announcement at around 4.6%.

4.49% YTD.... my calculation got a bit more complicated this month in that I did a big withdrawal in June for the condo we bought so I did a XIRR calculation.

However, the Investment Return Calculator: Measure your Portfolio's Performance is pretty similar at 4.43%

40% domestic stocks/20% international stocks/28% domestic bonds/7% international bonds/5% cash

About +5.5% YTD with a 50/40/10, 10 being RE.
Fidelity updates everyday on their mobile app the average investor return over the last year. As of this evening, it was -4.82%. Ouch.

4.6% so far. The biggest winner from my portfolio is FNMIX, an emerging market bond fund. The biggest loser is DODFX, an international stock fund. It took a big hit after Brexit result and didn't recover yet. Still doing well with my short term trades which is up about 7%. My total asset increased even with withdrawal. I couldn't have asked for more.

In the last 2 1/2 years, i have contributed 205k dollars to our various accounts. My total savings over those 2 1/2 years has risen by about 205k in that time. Uhg. I am going to say i'm flat for 2016, and 15, and 14.

I'd have to consult the magic spreadsheet to calculate how much we are up, but as of Friday we are back to where we were before the Brexit blowup. We are 50/50 AA and the nice thing is that the increase in the fixed income side that came as equities were getting clobbered hasn't decreased so that's a bonus.

What are you invested in? Wellington (indicative of a 60/40 AA) has returned 8.39% a year over the last 3 years.

Continuing slow, steady climb, 5.6% ytd. AA remains at 58/24/18. I probably should put some cash to work but it sure helped me sleep this last week. I can only hope these results continue for the rest of the year.
