Worse than that sometimes.

The tallest and largest tree on my lot got hit by lightning. It survived, but quite a bit shorter.

Worse are the trees in Rocky Mountain Park in Colorado. Bark beetles got them all.

Still up 3.9% YTD down from 9.3% on Feb 20. So far nothing to sweat about.

-3.6% YTD, all-in. 67/30/3. Back to November 2019 closing levels. Ho hum. Not saying I will always be bored, but I think the phrase "nothing to see here" is appropriate, since if it had just gone flat for four months, nobody would be doing that much hand-wringing, would they?

Surprisingly, US, HongKong and Singapore didn't break through rebalance bands, but Canada and Australia did.

Who cares? Short term gains or losses don't mean anything. You have to go 3-5 years to even comment on returns.

Market timers care. Whether they report results over 3-5+ years is another thing.

My data hasn't updated for today yet, but today wasn't too bad. Yesterday I was at -4.64 so I should be just under 5% loss YTD. 60/40 portfolio which now is closer to 58/42.

ETA:

My data just posted. 5.06% loss YTD (through Friday 2/28). AA has moved to be closer to 56/44. Probably time to rebalance soon back to 60/40.

I am out of town, so I haven't done a detailed update, but a quick calc puts us in this range.

I care and I'm not a market timer. I tax loss harvest in my taxable account when appropriate....I try to do Roth conversions on weakness during volatile times....I could go on. After all it is the 2020 investment performance thread and 2020 is only a couple months old.

I couldn't sleep, so I figured I'd get online and total up the numbers. Here's my progress so far this year...

+0.23% as of 1/31/20.
-6.78% as of 2/28/20.

So, seeing it as a percentage, rather than a dollar amount, I feel a bit better. I was actually up around 4.67% on 2/19 though, so off the peak it's more like an 11.4% drop. That seems a bit more evil

That's impressive, care to show your allocation? I'm down over 10%, heavy in stocks...

At the conclusion of one of the worst weeks ever for US equities, we are down 4.6% on a 60/40 bogleheads portfolio.
