A lot of money! (on paper)
This seems like a bad year for investors. My own portfolio is going up and down by several hundred thousand yen every day (and trending downwards). Luckily it doesn't really bother me much (I can sleep at night in investors lingo).
As I wrote about about in the post about the stock market here, having an investment plan and being aware of your circumstances make all the difference.
Josh Brown has a nice post about how investors should think about the market depending on their stage in life.
Andrew Hallam writes about buying opportunities when stocks fall (if you are young, the best thing that could happen is a prolonged stock crash).
Right now unfortunately I don't have any cash to invest so I am hoping the markets stay down until later in the year. How about you?
Stay safe out there and enjoy the bargains.
