Normally, I expect to update My Prosper Internal Rate or Return twice a month: last day of the month for account value and the day I get the monthly statement. Since posting My Prosper IRR yesterday, I have gotten my monthly statement; hence, there will be 3 updates this month (yesterday, today, and the last day of the month). I received $25.40 in interest last month (note received as opposed to accrued).
That changes my December cash flow to ($274.60) — the ($300) I deposited and $25.40 in interest.
Here are teh adjusted cash flows…

My IRR jumped from 1.11% to 1.41%. While I like to see it going up, what I am really interested in seeing is how it performs with late payments. To be clear, I am not asking for a late borrower, but I expect to have one eventually.
I welcome comments in this area, I am just starting to wrap my head around this problem.
