I wasn't planning on selling yesterday nor today/tomorrow. I'll buy some later this month but had decided to do that nearly two years ago.

We are obviously in the grips of a Market correction.Momentum is in the downward direction.It took a long time in coming.In the long term it really does not matter.This too shall pass.If it keeps going down I can purchase shares cheaper.I have seen this movie before.

+1. The Fed has propped up this market for years now with QE, but that could not go on forever. Growth has slowed around the world, earnings are not very good, and the market will continue to correct until things come back into balance and reflect reality. Not a big deal if you are a long-term investor, and can stomach the ups and downs, but get ready for some big up and down moves in the short term (probably more down days than up).

Given the thread about stock market manipulation, does the stock market ever reflect reality? I too lost a car today.

I think it does reflect reality at times, but there can be long stretches where it doesn't. The last 6 years or so are a prime example of the market being manipulated (in a major way by the Fed), causing a disconnect with reality, IMHO. I think reality is going to win out (for a while anyway) from this point forward, but maybe not.......we'll see.

Well, earlier this month I *was* up three cars in my trading account but now I am only up one car and a rickshaw with a loose wheel.
