"These are the times that try men's souls"

This is my 2nd bear market and I hope I can be as disciplined as I was the last time and rebalance to target AA as needed. However, my worst year was -11%, (2002) but today I have a lot more invested. I am -6.7% but getting close to a 6 figure reversal. (Gotta think percentages and look at $ )
Retired in Jan, 2010 at 55, moved to England in May 2016
Enough private pension and SS income to cover all needs
