    Yes, my investment accounts (not counting one pure fixed income account and retirement accounts) made 23.9% this year! Well, that's below 31.5% of S&P total, but I still have some fixed income and cash on my accounts. My long term performance (since February 1998) jumped 13.8%, which still beats Dow, S&P, Nasdaq or almost any index you can find. Maybe you can't beat the market, but I can. Well, anybody can. It's just a lot of work.

    Anyway, I'm raising my champagne tonight for the New Year.

    congratulations.
    A quick look at my account YTD and I see I am +18%, not as well as you or the S&P but I used a lot of hedges which works in a down market but cost me in the bull we experienced in 2013.
    Have a happy and prosperous 2014.
