Stock value is such a bogas thing. the 1.3 loss is of its potential dollar value. It is not worth nothing until sold.
As soon as you have converted your dollars to stocks, you have 0 dollars and only the potential of the stocks.
Hell you can be frozen out of selling stocks for a year. So for a year you have changed 100 dollars into 0 dollars, with the hope that in 1 year time the potential sell value of the stock is higher then when you traded.
Hell most paper notes are worthless, they just say the bank will honor the 10.
Those banks in Italy using parmasan cheess as collatoral have the right idea. You go bust, we still have a good chance of selling the cheess. but Stock, or even building value, nah.
I hear you. I've run outdoors 4 times in the last week, after a hiatus of over two months due to weather and such. My hard-core treatment of my quads has left my legs grumbling. They can't decide which one is going to kick the head and knock me unconscious while the other one goes for help.
