i totally agree. those that come out here bragging about their doubles, triples, and 10-baggers don't talk about the ones that crushed their accounts. If they are young and lucky, their day will come if they think its this easy. i'm ready to go all in with mutual funds. the only reason i don't is that i feel more in control of my losses when the market heads south again.
no explanation i can see other than brazil is down. brazil is down because they are expected to raise rates tomorrow, on top of a sputtering economy. hopefully there is a "buy the news" event tomorrow. brazil has been dropping pretty steadily lately.
