|[5/26/17] set a preliminary date for early retirement in 26 months.
[4/5/17] not updated for over a year since I have to tracking with Personal Capital lately, this is still good place for comparisons.
Married for 12 years, no kid. I started working in 1997, saved about 100k in IRA, then I was trading too much and that account went to maybe 30k. In 2003, due to some difficult time at my place of work, we were down to about less than $100 in savings besides my IRA. That's when I started a freedom fund saving for rainy days. Did that for the next 4 years before started invest again. Much more buy and hold. [2017 goal met but I decide to keep going since work is still fun and maybe we will target early retirement instead of a year off ]
I'm deleting these entries because the chart is off due to missing dates
