That means that a few of my ETFs that always paid out in September suddenly paid out a day or two […] The post Time in the Market Dividend Review – October 2018 – Late ETF Dividends ...

It’s goal review time, the part of the year where I judge myself on how successful I’ve been in achieving the random goals I set at the start of the year. Last year’s Q3 Goal Review got me into gear. That exercise was a big reason as to why I met my goals. I’m hoping […] The post Time in the Market’s Q3 2018 Goal Review appeared first on Time In ...

My car loan is no more! It has ceased to be! I drove down to the credit union today and dropped my final car payment on them. I felt pretty good going in there with my early car loan payoff.

The long term investor who entered the market after 2008 has had a pretty good run. That’s why days when the market drops a […] The post The unlucky long term investor still makes money appeared first on Time In ...

There’s not much better than those crisp cool fall mornings. It’s unfortunate that it comes before my least favorite season […] The post Time in the Market Dividend Review – September 2018 – Late Dividends appeared ...

There’s a lot of new automated […] The post My Thoughts on M1 Finance appeared first on Time In the Market. ...

Quick life update here to explain my lack of posting. I’m getting married and I have a new job and my free time has been sucked away into some big dark void where blog articles don’t exist. It’s true, it has happened to many hobbies and now it happened to me! I’ve mentioned this before […] The post I am getting married this weekend and I have a new job appeared ...
