I've noticed ... for me it's almost like water off a duck's back.
My retirement money is in a fixed rate fund and while not very lucrative (+4.7% last year), I never lose money and I can sleep at night on days like this.
I have friends my age and they're still working trying to recoup their 401(k) losses. No telling what damage the last 7-10 days have done to their accounts.
Hell, they may be working until they're 70.
I consider myself very lucky - as I said - if I hadn't listened to Beck, I'd be hurtin' too.
