Ok, first Q: What is the name of this fund and class share you are in if applicable? What are its expenses, etc.?

Secondly, I think you have now been hit with what can happen if you are aggressive and things don't pan out. The question is were you too aggressive in the beginning or not? If you weren't, then I'd say invest in the fund now at its lows and have faith in the manager as well as realizing that changes in NAV are not responsible for all of a fund's return(Because funds have distributions that go to shareholders they have to be factored in somehow since a fund can drop quite a bit due to a big distribution that doesn't affect the amount of the investment if it is re-invested that much).
