One of my biggest concerns about the market and it's future is the reaction time needed to get out when things come crashing down. During the Sept, Oct timeframe it just kept going down while I thought "yeah, markets do that, great opportunity!" Yet, in hindsight it was more like the tower of terror ride than the normal drop of an over-correction. So, still being in some mutual funds now, I wonder if mutual find managers have the ability to react nimbly to things if (when) the next big drop happens? What do you think?

Seems to me the last time around it happened too fast to react. Do you think they are better prepared to watch for things and drop their stocks that are likely to drag the fund down? Or are mutual funds just too lumbering to react?

Thanks,
Mike
