November 2016 – net worth and expenses

November was the post-election month and the markets did surprise me. I did not expect this rally! In the end it was a positive month and I’m closer to my year-end goal of 360k.

  • brokerage accounts 293.0k (+1.3k)
  • ETFs 10.5k (+0.5k)
  • cash 49.9k (+3.0k)
  • alternative investments 35.2k (-0.1k)
  • taxes -30.5k
  • total 358.1k (+4.4k) [+1.2%]

Monthly Expenses

  • January 2.8k
  • February 2.6k
  • March 3.4k
  • April 3.7k
  • May 3.3k
  • June 3.2k
  • July 2.9k
  • August 2.6k
  • September 2.9k
  • October 2.7k
  • November 2.5k

Yeah – the lowest month of the year! Running expenses for the year are now below 36k (which is my goal).

About this blog

I will spend less time on this blog in the future. This means comments will take much longer to get published and my next post will be in the beginning of the new year. My previous “Escape 9 to 5” is more or less failed (at least stalled). So to be free earlier, I’m working on a new way to earn around 1k each month (which will be selling my time doing programming).
