    Having huge medical bills for the past few years has kept me from having the burdon of worrying about the stock market!

    How bad did it drop? I know it started sliding earlier in the week.

    Down about 10% for the week. Not a huge amount invested but it still sucks to loose and I cringe when I think about it. I shoulda saw it coming, normally I can do 10-30% gains a month. Guess i got a lil greedy and overly confident........

    Remembering losses can generate profit !

    NEW YORK (AP) - Wall Street plunged again Thursday, extending an almost relentless downward spiral after problems at Countrywide Financial Corp. (#HYPERLINK "http://money.excite.com/jsp/qt/short.jsp?symbol_search_text=CFC"CFC) confirmed investors' fears that credit problems are spreading. The market shrugged off the Federal Reserve's injection of $17 billion into the banking system, and the Dow Jones industrial average fell more than 300 points.
    Investors' confidence, already diminished by months of bad news about mortgages and credit, took a further pummeling after Countrywide, the nation's largest mortgage lender, said it was forced to draw on an $11.5 billion credit line to fund operations.
