    I'm in the same boat. It sucks. It has come to the point where I don't even like to check anymore.

    I pulled all my 401K portfolio into the Moneymarket fund a little over a year ago. It will stay there until it looks like the crapstorm has passed.

    Don't panic. It'll recover. This stuff occurs now and again.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    If need be I can fill that position. My bank account runs into the hundreds. Not bragging, just being honest.

    checked my first thing this morning from aug8th to sept 8th down .56% still up 1.34% for the year...I'm going to check it this evening and a few days to see what happens.

    In july I changed mine around to stop the bleeding and it hasn't helped that much. Too bad they don't offer a gold only option.

    I am definitely taking advantage of some dollar-cost averaging in my portfolio, which is, I am sad to say, not making as much as I'd like it to. I kinda missed the boat on my timing for this correction and now it's too late and I have to just ride it out. At least I'm not losing money... thank god...

    My 401k is going to offer a REIT starting in October. Talk about awesome. Real-estate is cheap and getting cheaper and it's just about time to look for some bargains. Some very fundamentally sound areas are being dragged down by the credit crunch, and other properties, particularly cheaper ones, are actually going up due to the fact that, with tighter credit, people are having to settle for less-expensive homes.

    My YTD just fell below 10% this month, and my TTM is right about the same. Of course, they become less and less different as the year goes on, but at least I have some consistency.

    Grumble, grumble, grumble.

    I bought my 2nd house at the peak just before the market took a dive...so its worth a lot less than what I paid for it. My personal retirement is okay but isn't where I want it to be. I need to find out where my PERS retirement plan is...

    At least I have my health and my family. That's all that counts, really.

    Good old Wall Street does what it always does, skims the cream off the top, and leaves the masses with the watered down product.

    If you factor in inflation, it's even more dismal.

    And without some fresh "fed" hyper inflating of your money system, things are not going to get better, we're about to "Japan" for a decade or so.
