I made about $120 today.
Link Posted: 2/28/2007 1:28:31 AM EST
on paper....

About $4k.

I moved to 80%+ cash about 6 weeks ago. Looks like that acct gained yesterday.

I'm looking forward to a continued pull back. After a 10-15% fall I'll start cherry picking.

Nothing. I don't buy or sell based on what the market is doing or going to do. I've never purchased a stock based solely on its price.

Since what I hold will probably not be sold for at least another 15 years I couldn't care less what the market did today - I haven't even looked at my portfolio online.

If it plummets more tomorrow I may have to buy a few, but nothing serious (I'd grab some CTB at $12 per share or less, maybe take a look at BPT).

Thankfully, only about 2% or $3000.
I play in the US, Korean and Japanese market and there are a lot of bargains floating around

Down 2.5% overall yesterday, excluding the real-estate investments. The 401k was hit hardest (down 4%) since it's most aggressively invested. No big deal, and since I get paid today (end of month) it just means the shares I'm buying are on sale.

A couple of the bond funds posted some nice gains, too.

I don't want to talk about it...

Down about 3%, on paper at least. You don't really lose anything until you sell.

Not a big deal. I'm in it for the long haul.

No idea.

I'm in the markets for the long haul, so fluctuations like this aren't on my radar. Besides, somewhat of a rebound is likely today IMO, especially if the concerns were related to the Chinese market.

I'm with you on the Gold and Silver....and some real estate we have. Keep the paper, hope you make a killing, just not for me.

yep. I just use the dips for good buying opportunities. I actually hope everything overseas goes down again today.

I made a few trades as soon as the market opened and now my account is close to even after yesterdays drop.

I made these as swing trades so I will probobly sell the in them morning. I will be holding onto my long term trades that are down from yesterday.

I'm glad I bought 20 options of TGT this morning, its up 2 + points so far.

Kamer had some good advice yestreday

+1 Got to buy some more PMs to add to the collection when the price dipped. I LOVE knee-jerk reactions to market conditions!!!
Link Posted: 2/28/2007 6:33:41 AM EST
Well... my M10/45 probably went up a wee little. No stocks, so i didn't lose squat.


Of course, if you figure the repercussions across the board, we'll all end up taking it in the butt.

It isn't money and you didn't lose or gain anything unless you sold it.

Link Posted: 2/28/2007 7:05:14 AM EST
$1280.55! OH Well, I'll get it back and then some!
