Hi Jennew,

This is number one mistake, people "PANIC" or

let there "EMOTIONS" take over. This is a no, no

its the nature of the stock market, we had to

expect this too happen. If you want to loss money

pull it out however, if you want to make more

money, buy more when prices are low....

For a side kick always invest into a "ROTH IRA's"

it'll be $2000.00 a person if your income doesn't

exceed $150,000.00 a year. You'll pay taxes up

front but, you and I don't know how much taxes

are going to jump by the time we retire!!!! On top

of that you can leave it in there and watch it grow.

Unlike the regular IRA you have to pull certain amount

out at 59.5.

Never depend on ONE company for your retirement a

good example is to check out the "FOOLISH 401k"

board. Here you'll find out what happens when a company

goes "Bankrupt" or "Merge" and "Takeover" etc....

All this should be taken into consideration, be on

guard and invest wisely!

Good Luck
