Investments Down...Down...Down.....

September 18th, 2008 at 10:10 pm

Well I am an automatic long term investor who has watched several thousand dollars in value just evaporate.

I suppose I could panic and get upset but what would be the point. I will continue to invest on a regular basis and thus buy shares of Mutual Funds, ETFs, and Stocks at a lower price.

If the economy were to collapse I fear it would take the rest of the world economy with it. Worrying is moot! Whatever happens happens and there is little I can do to change it.

The politicians on both sides of the aisle are already fingerpointing. Just what we need!Rolleyes

I hope others are doing well!

    i only look at my investments once a month, and last time i looked, they were just down 5%, but of course, i've continued to contribute 15% of my salary through my 401k, so without those contributions, i'm sure they'd be down more.

    I'm trying not to think about it. Think of the stock market as a yo-yo. It swings up, then it swings down, then it swings up....

    ...and it's swing up today. Huge!

    In any case, I'm doing fine. Still here. How are you?

    You got that right. You could pull your money out, but where would you put it? The US sneezes and the rest of the world catches pneumonia.

    I agree, I am nerw to this and didn't have much but something is better than nothing and I too feel the pain

    I suspect it is going to get worse before it gets better!
