I finally had the nerve to look at my 401K, wrong move!


Before I go off myself in the parking lot... I'm down 37.3% for the year. Is that about average for everyone else?

Down 38.5% for me, although I've remained mostly in stock funds. My retirement time horizon is 15 to 20 years out so I see this recent downturn as a buying opportunity.

Or so I tell myself. :crying:

Gun,
You and I must be in the same funds. :(
You mean the ones that had us up over 40% last year?

Funny how 48% down is a boat load more dinero than being up over 40%. One of the mysteries of mathematics. I need to be up 100% now to break even.

Does it matter?

My wife will kill me long before I get to collect.

At least you can go up more than 100%. Nothing iritates me more than some moron local news-reader telling me that "oil prices have dropped over 200% since July."

How about the maroons that say low oil prices are bad because we won't insist on solutions to fossil fuel dependency, global warming, etc? "Cake and eat it too" keeps ringing in my head.

-45.6

Guess it's a good thing they don't have a mandatory retirement age at the fractionals.

Down 38%, if you have 10 plus years, think of it as an amazing buying opportunity. In the history of the stock market, no 10 year period has ever lost money.
