There is, of course, a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.

But many of us have already seen a ~50% correction and therefore know the mettle from which we're made.

Personally, I think it's easier to stomach a 50% correction when you're working, saving, and sitting on a smaller pile.

Those of us who have recently retired with no way to quickly replenish our large stashes will be crying like little girls during such an event. :P

Thats why you start with twice as much as you think you'll need.

And the pile only seems small in retrospect.

Re: fundamental premise

I guess I'm confused (as usual?). Our little move this last week was pretty normal. I was not happy with it but I certainly didn't think it couldn't happen. The S&P took a 4% bath. It's not even going to make the list of "big drops" on the financial shows 10 years from now. If it keeps going at the same rate for another month, it will.

My net worth is back to within a few dollars of what I started the year with. Eight weeks gains that were very good were wiped out in a mere 4 days. It was about a year's worth of frugal living expenses.

I have not changed my asset allocation nor do I intend to.
