I left my firm on December 31, 1999, a mere three months before the market started to plunge. After settling down some, the market plunged again after 9-11. I didn't plan on either of these things, so I got a little concerned when my overall portfolio notched a 55% drop in net asset value.

Congrats on weathering the storm. I am concerned about what you were invested in that you suffered such losses after retirement?
