ResNullus,

The poll was about 401k, so capital losses should not apply. With a 401k it should be fairly easy to answer this based on market gains/losses for each of the years 2008/2009/2010 . Usually the annual statement will break down the contributions and gains/losses so you can easily tell.


Since I had my original fixed asset allocation within my IRA (it was only 30% of the total portfolio, give or take), I am actually ahead of the market high, no counting additional contributions.
