About 8.5-9%, but this thread is doing it's job. I care less and less about the percentage gains.

I generally don't look at YTD. When I look at my IRA I see that it's up 26% overall (3 years or so), and my brokerage account is up 56% from original value. I like the current momentum. I'm sitting on what I have.

+4.71% VSMGX Vanguard LifeStrategy Moderate Growth fund, has US + International
+5.91% VBIAX Vanguard Balanced Index fund, has US only and no international
+7.80% DGSIX, DFA Global Allocation 60/40 I fund, a small-cap and value tilted 60/40 asset allocation

Once again, the performance of a 60/40 portfolio varies by quite a bit depending on how the 60/40 is consituted.

My 60/40 is up roughly 6.3% YTD based on the "personal returns" spreadsheet in the wiki.

My number includes my cash as well, as I want to view my total portfolio - which for me includes cash (a specific $ range which is currently roughly 3% of my portfolio, included as part of my fixed income) and I/EE Bonds.

For our Vanguard holdings, we are up $143,415.41 YTD as of COB Friday, with $19,370 YTD already distributed prior to Friday's COB YTD.

Vanguard VA up $13,205.01 YTD

I-bonds up $3,332.13 YTD.

Grand total $159,952.55 YTD.

It has been a great third of 2021.
