After a longer break here I am with a half yearly overview. So far this year has been extremely busy but in the good sense. With the arrival of baby Roadrunner our free time has significantly reduced, but at the same time this is also a very rewarding period of our life. Even though I did not have the chance to post monthly updates, I was still preparing the overviews ...

You might have noticed that the blog has not been updated for a few months. This has a couple of reasons. The biggest reason is actually a really happy one. In March we had a new addition to our family! Baby Roadrunner No. 2 was born with 3.2 kilos and luckily both she and Mrs. Roadrunner are healthy and doing fine. We couldn’t be happier and feel that our family ...

This will be the first financial overview of 2019. This year will mark the 4th year of our financial journey. It is amazing how much we have already achieved since that first investment account has been opened and the first (literally) few euros of dividends started to roll in.

First of all happy New Year everyone! Time is flying and 2019 will mark our 4th year towards financial independence. A lot has been achieved in 2018, but I suppose from a financial perspective the year will not be nicely remembered. Even though the first half year started really good, the year end sell off has left a big mark on the performance of most portfolios. But let’s see it ...

The year is almost over and it doesn’t seem to get boring at the stock market. Right now we are around levels that have stopped the fall twice during the last two months. If this falls, we might see some bigger drops in the future. Below I will demonstrate how this is impacting our portfolio. All together I am not worried at all and strictly sticking to the plan that ...

With a bit of a delay here comes the financial overview of October. Recently I am super busy and have a good and very happy reason for it. Our family is about to expand and in a few months there will be one more little princess at the Roadrunners. This also means that I am focusing more on helping around the house, taking care of the little one, and yes, ...

As Q3 is over, it is time to review the current standing of the 2018 Battle. This quarter the stock market was doing particularly well, therefore my expectation was that we will see some pretty impressive results. Let’s see how the 4 portfolios have performed! First of all, each portfolio has gained versus the closing of the last quarter. 3 of them are in a positive territory, which is not ...

Raise your hands if you thought at the beginning of this year that by the end of Q3 the S&P 500 will be around its all time high. This market rally seems unstoppable and who knows when will be the end of it. Of course I like to see the value of my investments going higher and higher but I am watching this with cautious optimism. September has also brought ...

The last days of summer are officially over. This was a hot one! And not a boring one either from an investment point of view. The good old saying “Sell in May, go away” definitely didn’t work this time. Hope you guys didn’t sell anything either! Before getting into the overview of August, a technical update: I received a few messages saying that many of you cannot comment on the ...
