The interesting fact is we don't know where the market is going. It could rebound or tank some more.

I have money from an inheritance in a trust account. The account rose 20% over the last few years. Now I am down 10% from the original contribution.

Personally, I am upset with myself that I lost so much money with this account. I couldn't stomach loosing my parent's life work. So, I went to a money market.

I want to keep the money in a Treasury Money Market account. Then I could invest the dividends into a Total Stock Market fund.

I am unsure about my philosophy at the moment and the money simply sits in the Money Market.

Some may say selling out was foolish. In the meantime, I pat myself on the back that I didn't loose another 10% from last week's losses.
