I just did my monthly net worth calculation, and my net worth took a substantial jump last month thanks to the market rebound. May be temporary, though. I have ramped up my savings rate to try to stay on FIRE target despite the losses of the past year. I am experiencing a fair amount of anxiety related to salary stability; less so job security anxiety, but some there too. This has led me to "hoard" more cash than usual. I'm justifying this by calling the extra cash "house fund money," but truthfully until my job/salary security is more sure, I am going to remain a renter. I am a fear-based budgeter, and I can't work up the courage to buy a house right now, despite the low mortgage rates. Sort of a shame, as I really thought I was ready this January to become a homeowner. But, things change.Other than the cash hoarding, I am staying on track with my asset allocation. That sounds contradictory, but my AA doesn't count cash that isn't earmarked for investment. FIgirl
