The S&P is still off -1.11% from its 2126 high nearly a year ago July 17th 2015. Technically we've been sitting at the same slot machine on the same $20 bill for the past year. Unless of course you shorted and DCA'd back in on the dips...

If I look back and exclude my contributions I'm up a whole $335 from last year's highs...like a gerbil running on a hamster wheel.

FIRE in 2031 @ 50yrs old (+/- 2yrs) w/ a hypothetical $2.5mil portfolio, 3 appreciated homes worth $1.0mil and rental income to fund my gap years until RMD. Assets will go to an inherited IRA where I plan on watching the investments grow until I die or the trust gets executed.

My stock portfolio, which are all individual dividend paying stocks is up 18.2% for the last year. A lot of fortuitous timing and selections to be sure, but the action this week is quite different from all the market action that has occurred previously. Some dividend stocks are going vertical in a climb, June was the best month of the last 12 for my portfolio and I am wondering if that is actually a good sign. After prancing in place for two years perhaps it seems to me that the coiled market is getting ready to unleash a large move, hopefully itís up and not down but I really get the feeling something big is in the offing.

30 year treasury rates hit an all time low, which would indicate that 30 year treasuries hit an all time high. Just to be clear.

With a trip planned to Scotland in October, I'm enjoying watching the UK pound getting cheaper. Love me some Brexit!
