When considering real returns for the S&P 500 with dividends reinvested:

History has shown that there have been some periods (1929, 1968, 2000), where it takes a (ahem) bit of time for the market to generate positive real returns. Like at least 15 years in the first two cases. Now that we are about 10% off the highs or so, that may shave a little time off in today's situation.

There are no guarantees in the investment arena.

I figure the odds be fifty-fifty I just might have something to say. FZ

<sigh> and here I thought Black Friday was supposed to be the day balances move out of the red for the year.

Very generous of you, but maybe more in the spirit of Giving Tuesday :)
