Hi FletchDepending on how "accurate" you wanted to be?Paul showed a simple way to look at the problem. Just take the amount lost, annualize that and then calculate the return. This gives a pretty good estimateAnother way to look at this would be to say you lost $1500 per month. So you started with $70,000, lost $1,500 over a month dropping the account to $68,500 and then contributed $1,500 to get back to $70,000.So $68,500/$70,000 shows you get 97.9% returned or call it a 2.1% loss rate per month. Which you annualize by raising that to the power of 12 (number of months)( .979 )^12 which is .775 (77.5%) returned or a 22.5% annualized loss rate and then depending on your timing for contributions - and final end date you could adjust the estimate even closer.
