Haven't looked at the 401k in ages, so this is just the taxable: AA was about 82% equities/18% MM at the beginning and about 93%/7% at the end of the month (actually closing 1st Feb, didn't check). I thought the drop was a good chance to buy, glad I did...I ended up down 2%, would have been down 3.9% otherwise. I'm not really much into trying to time the market, so I don't do this often, but the equities I bought on the 14th/15th/16th or so are up 17.3% in just a couple weeks.

I'm glad I rebalanced when the DOW was lower. If we get back close to 14,000, I will be way ahead of my high last fall. Of course I will need to rebalance again. But who knows, we may test the lows again before that happens.

My main account that has asset allocation in index funds 90% stocks, 10% bonds is down 2-3% after looking for the first time since end of Dec....So, I dont see what all of the "sky is falling" threads were all about... Looks like mid and small caps have been doing nicely...which I have been adding to during the downturn...

Down almost 4%, with gold, RE, BEARX, and new purchases near the bottom helping out. Roughly 20% cash, the rest is equities.
