This makes me happy because I tend to have huge tax returns. I'll get mine at the end of the week, though I may have to file an amended return later. Also, it's about time for the company match to SIMPLE-IRA, which will be 3% of my base pay for last year. Also, 1Q bonus should come out on April 15.
SO, let it bottom out, 5 or 10%. It just puts me that much ahead. The key is buying companies that aren't going away.
Now, if it dives more than 15%, I think this could be a destabilizing force for the world economy. Stock up on gold boullion and long-term food/water reserves.

Just to note, notice how sept 11 happenned AFTER things started to level off.
