Same, I've got an excellent opportunity to move to a lower COL area and own a home for insanely cheap but need a remote or hybrid job in that area.

Otherwise I'm stuck renting in my HCOL current location.

Hi, I’m in the midst of my midlife crisis…how do I survive? The typical I don’t feel like I’m where I should be.

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high. And not only that, this has been the fastest increase. 401k up 40% this year. Personal brokerage up 40%. And just refinanced at 2.5. Not sure whether to be sad or happy. Guess will go with happy for now.

looking into rolling old 401k into a Roth IRA. I just graduated from MBA and therefore have only worked a few months in 2022. Am I correct in thinking that the taxes I pay will be lower than if I did this in any other year where I worked the full year? Any other drawbacks or things to think about?

As I had mentioned on Mon, we had our 100 point rebound in S&P/ES trades this morning at 3320, up from the 3220 lows on Monday. Technically, we came within 1.5 points of our 50% Half Way Back short, meaning we could drop and sell off towards our 3170 targets. However, market is still green, so it wouldn't be surprising to see a bit more of a rally or a need to test that 3320-3340 level again. Shorts are in play. Watch AAPL for clues as to the rally or failure and the next short leg.
