If the markets were up 2% on the day, then maybe I could see the confusion/concern. But the markets were crushed yesterday. Maybe you did a bit worse than the overall markets, but that should suggest on an up day, you will be up more than the average. I have an aggressive portfolio and was also worse off than the index averages - but month-to-date, year-to-date, and for the few years I've been tracking it, am beating the overall markets comfortably. Though, I must confess, I do wonder (dare I say fear) to see how I'll fare through an extended bear market!
