Financial independence - February 2016 update. Real updates.
-         Market is slightly recovering from string of consecutive losses.  I do not think that it will last very long. Commodity prices are still very low and in overall, emerging markets economies either developed, ones will underperform significantly. Dividends are promising to be lower than last year. My plan is to compensate for it for it with 20% exposure to bonds.
-          My annual savings is promising to be ~ $32K this year.  This is between $24K and $50K, as target.  With dividends, this should make nest egg at around $330K.
