Blog2008 ≫ Black Monday

Stop selling everyone, and you the news, stop telling people how bad it is, it's just making the ill informed small investors like me worry more, and sell, and exacerbate the problem. The market is only about as low as it was in mid August right now, but I expect* it's going to drop again when it opens.

My shares in Channelfly, all I ended up with in exchange for popex are worth just about nothing now, but they weren't worth very much anyway.

Ooh, on the plus side, maybe the people who made an offer on that house we like lost their deposit / confidence in yesterday's share slump?

*based entirely on Sod's Law, popex is the extent of my financial experience, don't follow me, the value of your portfolio may fall as well as rise.
