I bought some too and it went down, most of the things I have bought are down. The things I want to buy have gone up. Sometimes it feels personal.

I'm just starting out and what i am learning is that as soon as you buy something and for every day after there is an even chance that it will either go up or go down. Over a week, month or a year you can't possibly know if it is going to go up more days than it will go down, you have to think in 5 to 10 years is this business still going to exist and does it have the chance to improve in that time.

Hope that helps,
