January has been a tough month. My available cash has been decreasing and my investments didn’t do too well. Read the rest of the article to see the chart. I came out ahead, but barely, even taking into account the fact I was snowed in one weekend and didn’t go out and I was sick for a total of seven days at different times throughout the month.
Update: I should have waited until the end of the day for posting my report rather than doing so right after midnight. I had other expenses and interest to include, and my investments have a different value after a better day in the market. The chart below is now updated.
