Dow now at 15,871. About 1,000 points higher than when I bailed two years ago. When I take into account all the stocks I also did not buy when the Dow was at 16k, 17k, and 18k, I am somewhere around break even. A little more of this correction and I will be ahead of the game.
The Dow is a poor measure of the US stock market.
