Sometimes, you think you're on a roll, and then after a few bad days, not only have you lost all of the money you made, but you're in the red - even on blue chip stocks you thought made sense. Heck, today's stock market tumble was so bad, even my 401k lost more than a thousand dollars all on its own. Google was down $36 a share in one day. Yikes!
It's enough to make me want to record this loss on last year's results to help with taxes this year. I don't know how well Uncle Sam is going to treat us come April 15th, but we could sure use the money.
