Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

401K, we hardly knew ye

I poked my nose into the tracking site for one of my 401Ks, and saw that since the last statement (period ending June 30th) it has lost 14% of its value. AGAIN. I’m soooo sad. It’s not like there was enough in there to actually retire on, but hell, that’s painful. And now I’m afraid to move my money around (into less-volatile funds) because I just have so damned many shares of the ones I’m in, that it seems a shame to move them. After all, as of this second, the Dow is 320 points higher than it was when I woke up, so maybe tomorrow my 14% will be back.

One can only hope.
