So last month about this time I decided to jump into the Daily Seasonal Mixes as a 12 mo experiment. I'll be honest, after doing Juhbulon's Old Mix from Jun '16 - Jun '17 and getting a 13.79 RoR I've been leery to veer from it. So I didn't really pay attention to much when mjedline66 put it up. I saw the thread was pretty popular so started getting into the thread and got excited about it.

So I started it doing one of the mixes. Then the top stop started changing hands like popping popcorn. Ironically the fund that i started with, coincided to the current top mix of #6861. So I rolled into it naturally without a break.

Started in the G fund, then into the F, now the I at the end. The I is hard to track obviously until the end of the day, but yeah EFA gives some semblance. After doing some research I found the reason behind the I Fund/EFA variance is the EFA is only a part of the I Fund index. The other part of the I Fund is apparently foreign currencies. So.. EFA up.. maybe currencies don't do so well, it comes back a bit and vice versa. For example the last two days:

June 29th: EFA was +.87% vs I Fund was +.47%

June 30th: EFA was -.99% vs. I Fund was -.27%

So.. EFA finished +.06% on the day. #6181 was at +.61% on the month, so it's a crap-shoot if that's going up or down for the day.

Either way, it beat the "F" fund I would have been in if I had gone traditional mix. So far my 1/12 of my personal year experiment has been a positive experience.

Hopefully it does well, but it's sure been fun watching it the past month.

Year to date using Juhbulon's Old Mix for Jan to May (7.36%) + June of #6861(?.61%?) = 7.97% ish.

Thanks for reading...
