This graph shows the movement in my net investment position over the last 12 years. The peak in 2007 was a two year bull run up that dissipated in the 2008 GFC adjustment. The amount of capital available to generate income has been fairly stable since then with a low point in June 2012. The first two months of 2012 have been very positive and my capital position has reverted back to the mean position over the last 12 years. The green below the line is the margin loan exposure. It must be noted that over these 12 years I have been drawing down annual living and business expenses.
