The stock Market is down almost 10 % in the last 2 days, how did those of you who have 401ks and other portfolios do?

I made it through with a push. So I am ecstatic. Nothing like a little diversity training.

This is the 2nd day in the last week my individual stocks have done this in one day. I'm a contrarian investor and momma said there'd be times like this.

Good for you.

I have a percentage in a contrarian fund, and it was actually up today, along with Barack Gold, and the cereal stocks.

A widows and orphans portfolio mostly. I have to sleep at night when the govt is bailing out the street.

I've got $1K in a 401K, so I could give a flying crap about my personal loses.

Yes, I do have a portfolio. I also have guarantees attached to my funds. Plus, I trust my financial advisor. I also believe the market will bounce back.

Some of my positions have been hammered lately. Fortunately I liquidated a few positions about a month or so ago when those positions reached a point I thought they had peaked. So I have some cash to throw at some of the great bargains that are out there.

Right now Cash is King!

I was embezzled of my wealth. Soon everyone will like me. :shake:

I still have my gold coins and my junk silver stash though.

Not sure about today, but so far this year my HSA is down 15.5% and my 401k is down 17.23%. Yesterday my 401k lost 3.29% in just one day.

I'm pretty well diversified, but not in any safe stuff. As far as I'm concerned, stocks are on sale and I'm seriously trying to decide if I can afford to bump my contribution a bit before I sit back and let 'er rip.
