Friday my financial advisor closed out the PUT positions in my account, that allowed me to sell the index funds in the account but at the PUT price from before the market meltdown. PUTs are kind of like an insurance policy in case of a bear market. So my retirement accounts are only down 3% from their peak back in early FEB and now are mostly cash with some gold related investments. My financial advisor is patiently looking for good opportunities to reinvest.

I'm far from an expert but there must be some bargains to be found.

BTW, your avatar upgrade is?

Knock on wood, maybe the S. Florida housing market is still strong.  I got two offers yesterday, one for full price.  Knock on wood again.  I don't want to count my chickens before they are hatched, b

I think that really would be a very bad idea. Investing is not for the faint of heart. I have been doing this for over 35 years. No one can really time the ups and downs accurately. Sometimes you

Heide Klum from America's Got Talent. Simon and Howie were already being used as an avatar by other accounts here. I was wondering how long it would take for someone to notice/comment. :laugh:

Spoiler

 

One year to retirement and this has to happen.  Most of my retirement funds are in the market, so I'll probably end up delaying a tad bit until the market comes back.  Pension is unaffected, so I have options.

P.S., In the meantime, I've been dumping all my spare change into the market now that it's low, so I'll get a boost when it does return.

A cup of coffee and the prize for you noticing gets you my permission to date Heide. I am sure she would accept, especially after she see's the size of your 'stimulus' check. :hystery:

Your prize is a date with "Pangit Ed" (without his new girlfriend), be sure to bring your own toothbrush. :hystery::hystery::hystery:

You convinced me to take a look.  Off about 10% from the high in late 2019.  I can live with that, but still glad I did not look earlier.  I read that stocks in Brazil were off over 40%. :Caught:
