I don't sell but do get dividends and interest. The real hurt comes when I have to pay tax on those wile my numbers are red.
I still have one unit to invest this month. I like to dollar cost average in over a month by buying the security that is down. So many choices. I think I'm going to let foreign stock fall to 10% of my stock holdings before I buy any more. Trying to keep it at 20% hurts too much.

If I did that the market would have its greatest 30 days in its history.
I'm going to take a nap. Wake me up when something interesting happens.
The Korean War is starting again. Radar is picking up Korean ICBMs headed this way so I wouldn't sweat the market.

Buying high and selling low.
Dunno....I'm still feeling pretty good about the decision to switch to 100% cash several weeks ago.
Make sure you tell us when to get back in. We want to get rich too.

You can do that with stocks. A casino has a limit on bet size.

The market was overdue for a "correction" of 10%. Don't do anything just stand there.
