Shucks, I discovered an oversight in my earlier May update which made me think I would be looking better after this weeks results. Unfortunately, with the correction, I am down 3.3%.

-17.81% through May 31... more of the same. Interesting in that with so little equities when I update prices in Quicken hardly anything changes... new experience for me.

I'm still convinced that the market is way ahead of its skis and when 2Q earnings come out worse than expected that reality will eventually set it. If it doesn't then I'm not sure I would want part of it anyway since at that point it is more gambling than investing.

No thrill of victory or agony of defeat!!Do you like it this way? I think I would miss the thrills of victories too much to stop playing.
But my decisions now are only changing what my kids will eventually get.

What I've been told it's all baked in. Good news, bad news, horrible news, baked.

Up 4.49% ytd. Portfolio 8/92.

Primary reason for positive number is due to successful daytrading. Volatility is a daytrader's dream. Hope going forward we have lots of volatility. Up or down it doesn't matter as I play both sides.

If I understand, you’re an avid day trader whose AA is 8% stocks right now and you’re up 4.49% ytd. I guess that’s entertainment for you but not as lucrative as if you’d simply bought and held for 2020 the 100% US Total bond index, which is up 5.59% for the year.

But the potential for a big win, the thrill, is not there for buy & hold. I understand. I made 90k in 4 days on what sure seemed an obvious sure bet, and it was. Big thrill.

I really don’t care what people do but, for myself, I prefer to get my thrills in different ways than betting my retirement dollars. Your mileage clearly varies, so Lady Luck to you.

That is true and sure glad I'm not down 17% for the rest of my living days and trying to figure out when to get back in.
There will be many more great years of markets ahead of us even thou we may be down for several of them as well. Staying to course and growing portfolio through time.

Down 6.1%. Back to around September's level total assets, so this really isn't a big deal (yet?).

-4.95% YTD (66/27/7).
Hopefully we will finish this year even or slightly positive. Plan on maintaining the asset allocation either way.

Holy moly! Only down -3.18%.

Crisis? What crisis?

Thankful to be here. Going to incur some capital gains taxes by selling more equities.

Now down 2% YTD. Of course, I did some selling when I shouldn’t of sold and did some buying when I shouldn’t have bought. I’m pretty happy with my portfolio now - and will ride out any future adverse market drops.

Down 9.43%.

Currently, 0/68/32 in retirement accounts. Looking to slowly move back into stocks over the next 12 - 18 months.

Cash is weighted average of 2.4% in stable value, cds, and MYGA's.

It seems that leading the world in Covid19 and recurring race riots does not affect the markets? That is good news for sure for us retired folks relying on our portfolios.
