June’s investment income only rose three cents to $27.69 from $27.66 the month before. This is somewhat depressing since I contributed $500 to my IRA in June but market losses erased almost all of it. I’m hoping for better results this month.
This is not my actual investment income. To get this figure I first add up my retirement accounts, emergency fund, and any other money I consider permanent savings. What the total of my savings would earn at 6% interest for a month is my monthly investment income.
