It is the 6 month in a row where my retirement accounts and investments have been in the green at the end of each month. This is strictly the markets, not real estate. I sure wish that was starting to come back. Anyways, if you are putting money away and into the market for long term – keep doing that. Do not worry that it will go down because there will be seasons of life where it will drop. Just keep in mind as retirement comes closer to start shifting your money into safer places. I know I am still making up for what I lost last year. but I am encouraged by the last 6 months and optimistic that the economy will get better.
