What would make a mutual fund drop 7 percent in one day? I've got a Global fund that's down that much today, even though it looks like most markets are up. I can't find any new news about the fund, and I don't see anything in my account about a big one-time dividend or anything.

A mutual fund shouldn't move that fast, particularly counter to the markets. What's up?

It's probably the day of the distributions. It'll go up tomorrow by 7%.

I wouldn't worry to much about it...SHORT TERM....If the trend continues throughtout a week or so then you should question moving....Funds often drop significantly then bounce right back....Your probably in for the long haul thus will be fine...

My two cents

How in the hell can a derelict schmuck like you, talk to an CP icon aka Rain Man like that?

Here is a simple explanation of what is happening. You can climb off the window ledge.

If Chiefs were a stock it would be plummeting.
Turn on the news and it would be like

"Chiefs stock is crashing...

gold is up two points."

How weird that I've never noticed this before. Thanks for the info.

It affects my ability to afford to go to games. If I can't go to a game, then that seat gets taken by someone who won't yell the precise, carefully researched and crafted words that will shatter Jay Cutler's self-confidence. If that doesn't happen, then perhaps the Broncos win at Arrowhead, costing us a playoff spot and ending up with some weird team like the Falcons hoisting the Lombardi in 2007 instead of the Chiefs.

NOW do you still want it moved to another forum? Is it REALLY worth costing the Chiefs a Super Bowl?

Actually...if it means we have a shot at going to the playoffs...then I'm all for it
