No. The market went down 50% in about a month in the 2008 meltdown. I was not in the market. Ergo, I lost nothing.
You're not too sharp are you?
you get so many facts wrong....I don't know why you even try to use facts in your arguments. hmmm...Actually, after thinking about it...you rarely do use facts in your arguments, and this is an example of why.
The market took a solid 17 months to fall 50%. the sp500 hit a high in oct 2007 and hit 50% down in March of 2009. At no time could there have been a one month fall of 50%. look at chart. oh sorry - you don't do factual things.
well, if you were interested in facts, then you would agree, after some research, that you are wrong here.
But the likelihood of you doing that is approaching zero.
