In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age of 38. Now, into their 3rd decade of this financially independent lifestyle, they invite you to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.


We have followed your adventures for years, and enjoyed The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement very much. You are a lot more adventuresome than we are as far as travel is concerned, but the points you make about investing for retirement, and controlling expenses is extremely valuable for everyone, whether they are close to retiring or not. We escaped the rat race when I was 51, and have been living the "good life" in Mexico since 1995.

Market Rallies As Expected - In last weekend’s newsletter, I suggested the markets could rally this week with some very specific caveats. Let’s review where we are. (All charts updated through Friday.) “The market has now tripped the first signal as shown above, and below, sending a warning that further weakness could ensue. With the first signal registered, combined with a break of the 50-dma, we are now on ‘a signal-1 alert.'”
