Default Is it time to take Grandma's advice???

Who's pulling all their money out ofthe market and burying it in their backyard or mattress??

I for one don't know what I should do next. I was thinking about switching everything into forigen markets (just delay the pain) . . . or burying it in the yard.

foreign funds in our 401k's are performing just as poorly as everything else right now. We just shuffled everything into Bond funds for a bit so at to slow our bleeding.

if you think the market is going to go down in value, do yourself a favor and leave the money in an FDIC insured institution, or buy gold

invest it in guns and ammo. seriously, in the last 8 years guns and ammo have more than doubled in value. on a side note, if the economy does hit rock bottom, try using that mayonnaise jar full of greenback to hunt for food.

and the increased cost of the metal used to make them. as of right now i can sell the beat up Chinese sks's i bought at yard sales and pawnshops for 200$$ and up. i paid well under 100 each for them. this is just one example of the rising prices of firearms.

If you think the market is going down grow a set of balls and play it on the short side.

If your a dumb ass that has a broker telling you what to do, then watch your money dwindle away in losses, stops, and the all so wonderful trade comission.

Most of my assets are in real estate. Since I'm selling some properties right now, I'm taking a spanking.

Nope, everythings taking a hit. Best bet is pull out all your money and invest it in AR-15's or something

Oh, and don't forget to shoot your neighbors before they shoot you. Just cuz you're paranoid doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you......

when the fannie may shit came out I pulled all my stuff and simply placed it into a cash value money market to protect from futher loss. kart racer is right, now would be a great time to put in cash as it will only go up.
