Couldn't agree more, Kurt.

To someone (even in retirement) who is well-diversified, has a properly allocated portfolio, and believes in capitalism (which is, essentially, what the stock market represents), all of this noise should, for the most part, be ignored.

Corrections are part of a normal, healthy economy and should be expected and planned for in deciding one's diversification and allocation.

Well, that's better than a poke in the eye but we're not out of the woods yet. I'm expecting a smaller correction (or two or three) once the Fed announces rate hikes. They may not do so this year - the economic conditions don't demand a hike - but it's coming.

My bond funds might appreciate a bit of inflation.

When the market dropped 1000pts I was ready to buy a fund that I had my eye one for 6 months. At 9:35 that morning it was down $13 dollars a share. Traffic was so high on the internet that I could not execute the buy with Vanguard. Also, their phone lines were all busy. When I finally connected to buy, it had gone back up in price so I guess I will wait for another opportunity.

I had similar experience....I'm thinking Voya Financial deliberately ignored it's customers (not answering phones and website shut down) in an effort to keep folks from moving their investments.

I'm the world's biggest skeptic.

Vanguard High Dividend ETF (VYM). Went down that day to $48.05 and is now $64.36. This fund rarely experiences large fluctuations in price so the $48.05 would have been a rare opportunity.
