Many it's painful to watch my favorite benchmark DODGX move down to $61, down from $70 last week. It's kind of nice to have a way to gadge overall portfolio performance by watching the same number each week.
Other thought about psychology:
Before recently, I read "the best time to buy is the point of highest pessimism" I read it and thought "yea, I can handle that, I'd increase my contributions" But right now, I am so dam pessimistic, I just want to sell it all. I mean, if I had gone all cash last week, I would have saved losing like 10K! or something crazy like that. I don't want to even think about how if I had sold last September before everything went down 30%.
I hate psychology.
