- Market is recovering I am still down ~ $ 33K in comparison with one year ago, mainly due to the over exposure to the energy sector. However as of today I reached myannual goal of $ 350K . I hope it will stay at this mark and I manage to accumulate another $20K before end of the year. On my way to financial independence I need to focus more on the income generated, that is the most important thing.
- Whether portfolio is $350 K or $370 K relatively is of no importance, as much as it pleases the eye. The plan is to have $10K in dividends by end of the year, which should cover about 10% of our expenses. Every $30 K in savings would give another 1%. At the current rate it means I need another $2,700 K to be financially independent… it will take about 40 years to get there :-). The compound interest of no real help , as the returns are fairly low.
