I blogged a few weeks ago about "My 401k is kicking butt" in which I discussed rebalancing my account and my current YTD return being 12.2% which is alot better than the 3% in 2006. After the market slump of this past week, about $2k has "disappeared" from my account. My 12.2% YTD return is more like 8.5%; still not a bad return but I don't think the fallout is over yet in the market. I wish I was able to avoid looking at my account ever so often and not worry about the occasional ups and downs of the market. Oh well, as they say, this is money you will not need for a long time.....blah, blah, blah. Can you tell I am a little frustrated?
