The only investment which generates historically 7% among my choices is S&P500. The rest are going under slightly, bringing overall 12 months rolling to 3.4%. This is including $23K I saved in the past period. Apart from the underperformance in absolute terms, Western Europeans currency are down 4% (EUR) and 8% (GBP). Eurozone is the worst performer of all.
With chaotic politics I expect that big correction sometime this year, beginning of the next. When S&P goes below 24,500 I will invest my cash into it or will keep looking at alternative investment. In the mean time will keep saving $1,250 a month towards my retirement. The best option to break this barrier is to start looking for a new job, which enables me to save more money.
