I have lost over $40K in my retirement accounts

So you sold your stocks / mutual funds and locked in the loss? Did you buy toilet paper with it?

Not today, probably not tomorrow. Were you planning on cashing out in the next month or so?

This too shall pass.

If you can't handle this drop - wait until it passes and then get the hell out of the market - because you aren't equipped to deal with it. Of course when it is going up you will be back in the 'it will always go up' mode - so it could by tough to convince yourself to get out... D'Oh! | :doh:
If you can't laugh at yourself - ask me and I will do it for you.
