Jeez, it must be a sign of the times when someone is happy that they "only" lost 37% of the value of their portfolio!
80% of my investments are in bonds, so no matter the value, my income is the same. I do have money in stock, which amazingly has also gone down that same 37% you mentioned! I don't like losing money, whether or not I can "afford to". I'm invested in about 40 stocks, between my regular & IRA accounts.
I'm happy because we are starting to see some gains in the market, regardless of all the bad news. In one of my IRA's in June I rolled out of 60% bonds thinking the bottom was there, no such luck. My other big IRA in also 60% bonds and I want to roll out of that too but not sure on the timing.
