Poor Jeff Bezos lost $5 billion.

These guys should be more careful with their money.


I have no idea how I did. I only look on the first of the month.

I didn't sell anything, so I didn't lose a dime.

You win!  Unless...the top was in?

Roughly 35k on paper. But I've got cash I've been meaning to deploy, so trying to see it as a good thing.

Asian markets bloodied overnight, expecting a further drop in US markets today. Been waiting for a real damn correction for a while now!

My losses are about $5,300 this month, but not all of that was today. Maybe $4,000?

if you ask Buffett, he'll tell you that he didn't lose anything yesterday. He still owns every single share he did the day before.

Down $10,000 from earlier in the month. Think I'll cut my losses and invest in Beanie Babies.

Haha awesome.
   Honestly I don’t check “the market” but did notice my vanguard account seemed a couple grand lower.

Unlike most of the people here, not going to retire for another 10 years, so I will need to ride any waves that come my way until that point. May you live in interesting times ; ).

The beanie babies market: my ex's current girlfriend brought from her childhood home, her stash of pristine, still with tags beanies, that she had collected when she was younger. The plan was to sell the expensive/rare ones, and give the nonvaluables to my youngest. After looking through ebay, etc, apparently none were worth more than the nominal amount. At least one person was happy (my youngest).
