I am up relative to 12/31/2017 too, and that's even after withdrawal.

However, the month of Jan 2018 gave me a big boost, which unfortunately did not last.

I am one small up day away from hitting my all time high from 08/18 after withdrawals.
Perhaps tomorrow, coz Wed Fed rate announcement usually doesn't bode well.

That would include me. Foreign exposure did poorly this time around.
Paying it forward is the best investment.

My taxable retirement fund, which I withdraw from annually, peaked in late Dec 2017. This month it finally exceeded that peak. So it has made up for two years of withdrawals on top of recovering from late 2018 correction.

My net worth, which peaked in Jan 2018, finally exceeded that level last month. It is now even higher.
Retired since summer 1999.

I also feel like 2017 was a banner year, and then 2018-19 have been up and down. We just recently surpassed our all-time high NW and investable assets earlier this month, and I keep reminding myself that, since we're not yet retired, this has been a buying opportunity that will help us later on. But the multiple five-figure emergency vet expenses we had earlier this year didn't help us feel any more flush. At least that situation worked out well, everyone is fine and healthy (for now).
