Not as bad as I thought.....
I pull all account balances the first of every month and plug them into a spreadsheet so I can track the growth of the portfolio. Of course after yesterday's DOW hit, I dreaded it, but it wasn't as bad as I thought. We are about a 50/50 AA and my one account with mostly bond funds actually increased over the January, and negated a lot of the other drops this week. Overall value only down $8k for the month. I was expecting worse. I guess that is how a "balanced portfolio" should work!?
Well of course it is my opinion, why would I express someone else's??
