Probably up to $4K / month. But I mean, there are lots of variables. Have you done a budget?

As a point of reference, I'm on $225K base with a $4.5K / month mortgage payment and I save about $3.5k / month.

But everybody has different savings targets, expenses, and liesure preferences.

I thought you had asked how little could you spend while staying safe. Which is also a valid question. 😄

We have a Total household income of 450K and spend 3.3K on a 2BR2BA. With 210K we were paying $2600 per month. Idk if I’d feel comfortable going over 3K with 210K with my lifestyle

All depends on your other fixed monthly expenses like car payments too. If you have no car, you can afford more

thanks for your comment. Right now we pay 1.8k and we plan to stay in that small apartment for another year. I hope we can put some good money aside and next year we evaluate the situation again.

My wife and I are looking into using a wealth manager. My wife works at a big four accountant in M&A, which restricts our trading (we need to pre-clear any symbol before trading, robotraders not allowed). It looks nearly impossible to trade as she can't have any work relation to 'related entities' of a symbol (which we can look up in the pre-clear system: often up to hundred for stock, thousands for ETFs). Which seems intractable for large portfolios.
Does anyone have experience with this?
