All things considered, the YTD losses aren’t that bad. So far, at least

Down 18.1% on the year as of mid day. 129 months to go before ER! Normally I would wait until EOM to report, but with 2 circuit breakers triggered in a week, the midst of a pandemic crisis and oil war, along with US now injecting 1.5T after meeting with Wall St. Late Last night while simultaneously shutting down UK to US travel...

99.5% Equities.

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.

I don't know because I haven't looked for weeks and don't plan to.

Yeah, I don't even want to know. I checked a week after the first plunge, and I was still above my starting point 8 months earlier. I'm sure I'm below that now, but I'd rather not know by how much. It's all an abstraction, since I'm just going to sit tight and wait.

Down 13% YTD at today's close.

I have not made any changes during the plummet except add SPY at 294, then again at 279, and again at 252.

Well today 3/13 was a good day in the market. I’m guessing I’m down about 14% but more importantly I’m sitting right at where I was at the end of 2018. So at this point all I’ve lost is what I “gained” in 2019. I can handle that and am hoping things will calm down now.

I'm down a lot, 90% equities, semi retired, but not stressing too much because I'm not tapping on my portfolio yet. Fingers crossed.

I won’t be on the 2020 performance All-Star team. Maybe they’ll call off the season?

Down about 8%. Wellesley is the big nut in my basket, so I go as Wellesley goes.
