My October Investment income rose to $85.24 from $83.28 the month before. The rise was mainly due to adding more money to my stock portfolio although my portfolio did slightly rise in value also. I will probably not be able to add to my investments this month so any rise in my income will have to come from a rising market.
Disclaimer: This is not my actual investment income. To get this figure I first add up my retirement savings, 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. My goal is to get this amount to $1000 a month. If I have $1000 in monthly passive investment income I will be able to retire early.
