We Did It!

That’s right. We officially added another comma to our net worth at the end of February. Though how long we are going to stay there is another story, this is the moment we want to celebrate. As you know, I have stoppped posting monthly update early last year. The main reason for not sharing all […]

No More Monthly Net Worth Update

One of the reasons that I started this blog in the summer of 2006 was as a tool to track our progress towards financial freedom, even though I never knew exactly how much is needed to get that freedom. It’s kind of like a moving target because nobody can really predict what things will be […]

March 2010 Score Card — Part I: Net Worth

We are that close of reaching the goal I set last year. However, with the closing of the house we bought last month coming soon plus a big tax bill, this is probably as close as we can get in while. March was a very good month for stocks, with the Nasdaq leading the way […]

February 2010 Score Card — Part I: Net Worth

After the streak of 10 straight monthly increase was snapped in January, the growth of our net worth returned last month as the overall stock market recovered from January’s poor performance.

November 2009 Score Card — Part I: Net Worth

Can’t believe it’s the last month of 2009 already. November turned out to be a very good month for us, especially for our investments which so far have been the main driver of our net worth growth. Overall, the stock markets worked in our favor in November, with the Dow gaining 6.51%, the Nasdaq adding […]

October 2009 Score Card — Part I: Net Worth

I feel that the last few days of October kind of ruined the whole month for investors. Even though the Dow closed above the physiologically important, but symbolic 10,000 mark for the first time in a year in October, the stock market sold off in the second half of the month. Major indices closed October […]
