November 2006 Financial Asset Roundup

Here are my current financial assets as of the market close on November 9th, 2006:

Asset Oct 2006 Nov 2006 Change
Checking 451 602 151
Money Market 19,016 23,295 4,279
Savings Bonds 15,795 14,172 -1,623
Treasury Bills 21,000 19,000 -2,000

Roth IRA 25,747 26,363 616
SEP IRA 135,995 146,603 10,608
529 Savings 29,026 29,886 860
Total Assets $464,145 $480,283 +$16,138 (3.5%)


The strong stock market once again gave my investments a nice boost over the past month and I have continued rotating my cash holdings out of I Bonds and T-Bills and into my HSBC online savings account. I will probably buy another 28 day T-Bill next week since T-Bill rates have started to become competitive again (5.324% APY at last auction).

I added an $8,000 contribution for the 2006 tax year to my SEP IRA since my last update, which accounted for half of my gain this month.
