Well, what is the name of fund? The mutual fund only knocks down the suspects to oh 10,000 blooming things around ya know? What it is and what are you looking for? Lots of funds went down and some didn't but I'm not psychic here. Ask yourself, "Why did I buy this fund?" If you can't answer it then LEARN about funds and how they work. If you can answer then see if the fund still meets that and how it did against its peers. Also, the share price of a fund is pretty irrelevant if you consider how distributions affect things.


(Wondering about those Japanese investors that are down 64% after 16 years. Or those mid-1970s US investors that had a 50% decline too.)
