May 2015 update - FInancial independence from the very beggining - niterainbow.com

-         Has been fairly stable month,  forecast is $358K towards end of the year vs. $420K planned.   Should EUR regain its ground against USD (i.e. reaching exchange rate 1.36 to USD like it was a year ago) I would meet my target but this is highly unlikely.  EUR has been deliberately lowered and will be kept low to maintain EU competitiveness.
-         I need to start thinking about reducing exposure to cash, as emergency fund is fully replenished and now has one year worth of expenses.  If I would invest everything in shares it would generate ~ $10K USD in dividends for me vs. ~$7.5 K now.
