March 2016 Financial Asset Roundup
Here are my current financial assets as of the market close on March 10th, 2016:
The S&P 500 has recovered nicely since the last update, rising 7.44% over the past month:

On the jobs front, the unemployment rate for February remained flat at 4.9%, with a strong 242,000 jobs added. Oil prices have climbed back up to the $38 level (up from $26), although the prices I've been paying at the gasoline pump have been pretty stable during that time.
On the financial front, my CPA finalized my 2015 S Corp tax returns and I was able to make my final 2015 SEP IRA contribution. Unless an unexpected opportunity presents itself before the next update, it should be a quiet month with regard to financial moves.
On the non-financial front, the usual tasks of finishing up my 2015 personal tax returns and working on a contract extension with my largest client are on the docket. As an added plus, that start of Spring is only nine days away. :)
