Rough numbers from memory (only includes 401(k), but other investments similar):
Year end - Value
2008 - 155K
2009 - 89K
2010 - 270K
Over those two years I contributed 33K (no match). Net change after subtracting the contributions = 30% (ish). How?
Not panicking while witnissing the drop & continuing to invest in equities as things went down. Must admit that my subscription to MF Stock Advisor helped.
