Overall, I'm pretty pleased at how my investments are coming back to life. I'm still behind with respect to the paper value but not as much as I was. To get back to breaking even,
- my retirement account has 18% to go
- my non registered account has 3.5% to go
The market drop has made me aware of the importance of a stronger cash position. We have taken steps to create that this year.
My new tax free saving account is doing well. I opted to invest in an index fund and it is currently yielding just over 9%.
Yesterday was the first day I actually thought about eating out. In the end we didn't. Funny what a year can do to change a way of life.
