The S&P 500 has continued to rise since the last update, up 1.24% during that time:

On the jobs front, the unemployment rate for May fell to 4.3%, matching the low near the beginning of the post tech-bubble recession in May 2001. Oil prices have dropped a bit to the $46 level, which could signal continuing low gas prices for the summer driving season. It's amazing to me that the S&P 500 is up ~13.5% since the 2016 Presidential election on November 8th despite the many stumbles of President Trump. Despite the political turmoil, it has certainly been a nice time to be an investor!

On the financial front, my asset levels have reached an all-time high for the SEVENTH month in a row, breaking the previous high from May 2017. After a busy May, I anticipate all things financial will be pretty quiet for the foreseeable future. Then again, Penfed may come out with surprise CD deal any time now (then again, maybe not :p).

As for the non-financial, we're working on our second heat wave of the year and we finally have a non-green pool to swim in.The young Frugalsons will be done with school for the year next week, so we'll have a couple of tired and hungry teens to deal with over the next couple of months. Good times...
