Oops, I'm actually only down 3% for January, I had forgotten to update prices for one of the investments.

I'm down about 6.5% from my high in June of 2007.

Down a bit in January, but we spent two months in Europe last fall, plus we bought a new Prius in December, paid the estimated tax on capital gains taken last year, and still aren't below our 2007 gains, so I feel o.k. When the portfolio drops below what it was a year ago, then I'll consider that it's down. As long as we're still working on last year's gain, it's o.k. by me.
