An update to the tracking method I use to determine how long until I’m financial independent.
May 2017 FI Status
As mentioned in my expense report status update I had unusually high expenses for the month of May however my FI savings plan stayed on track due to utilizing my emergency fund. I also started dissecting a portion of the FI account to invest in the stock market. I’ll start tracking if this is successful in growing my account. As I will be playing options instead of long-term holdings I’m only using an amount I’m fully prepared to lose. It may blow up or it may work that’s the fun of experimenting. Now on the May update.
There was a 0.05th of a year move down from last month. I may be too impatient but it seems a small amount. Stay tuned to see if my experiment investments increase or decrease my working years.
