My 401k has quite a few funds, plus company stock, DHR. I own alot of sirius stock. I am in it for the long haul, can't afford not to. I did buy some Euros and pound for our trip next summer.

My mutual funds are in such a state of despair I don't even look at them anymore. But my self directed stuff has done extremely well YTD - I'd say 50% luck, 50% being in the right place at the right time which basically equates to 100% luck.

Your mutual fund prices do not change during the day. They only update after the close!

King-- Don't worry about it too much, your a young guy with lots of time! The market will rebound in time (could be lots of time) but nonetheless, it will come up. Look it after 9/11 marketed plummeted then a few years later it is at record levels. Not to say what the market did after 9/11 is like the economy right now but just for example.

Your personal rate of return is about the same as YTD for the Dow. S&P is down 38% YTD so look at the bright side - you beat the S&P.

I know its rough watching your wealth "disappear" but it WILL rebound .... eventually .... right now its just paper loses. Just hang tight and try and learn from the experience. You'll be a better investor for it. I believe that slow and steady wins the race ... hang in there !

I don't know, you look like your in your 30s?

When I first started working at the lawfirm I am at now, an attorney was on the the board for Chapman's. But unfortunately he went on to become a judge before I could get to know him.

Thanks, I am 43. I dated the daughter of the owner of Chpmans for a few years, and I noticed you lived there.
