Anyone else think it's actually rather good that the market is down on a day that funds are giving out shares for capital gains, dividends and interest? It always seems like we're getting more shares at a bargain price. Of course, it helps if prices go up in the long run!

Agree but for a slightly different reason. I own a lot of bonds and bond funds. Boring as heck. But when the market drops and i still get those interest checks and shares for less.............. i am smiling.
