Thought for the day, plus some posts on the Stock Market, Finance, Politics, and Life!
A good read on the costs of retiring early.
S&P still looks good as it broke through its 200 SMA (brown line on chart below), came back down to test it, then went higher. As long as the 200 SMA acts as support, there is hope of the market maybe going higher, but time will tell. I was stopped out of VIS +1.35%, and MOO -1.61%. I bought XRT, VDE, and VPU this week and currently up on all of them. My investments are looking a lot better and not far off of their highs!

A good article about being sure you have enough for retirement.

A good article about being ready for the next bear market and some interesting stats of previous ones.
A good article about living a frugal lifestyle to have enough money in retirement, compared to those that live beyond their means and don't save for retirement, as so many people do. It reminds me of a quote: "Don't go broke trying to look rich!" – Unknown
