Quite month for the blog but another good month for my retirement nestegg. Every month I am amazed at how much my account grows especially when I look back just a few months earlier and see myself hitting $40,000, $50,000, $60,000 etc. In fact due to the fact that I have some contributions to catch up on before the end of the year I think I might pass $70,000 as early as next month and might even have a legitimate shot at $80,000 before the end of the year depending upon how the market performs.
Quick report this month, despite the fact that “market is crashing” and we should all have our money hidden under the mattress because the end is near, all of my accounts managed positive investment gains this month. 🙂 Bottom line – don’t try to time the market because you do not have a clue where it is going in the short run (long run though my money is on up 🙂 )
