So much for gun control the stock market is tanking or "Where'd my money go?"

    Stocks in general are not good for long time investment, in my humble and somewhat limited opinion. /QUOTE]

    I disagree with your statement. I have been in the Stock market for decades and have always found good stocks will increase in value and provide good dividends over a period of time. MY IRA is all stocks and as of Thursday increased in value from Dec. 31,2015 by 16.1% almost 6 months. On Friday after the DOW dropped 641 pts. it was down to 13.9% which is still a good increase in value. I expect it to return after the market settles down again. I have never panicked and sold during a falling market and waited till the market returned and recovered all of my paper losses. I do have a very good broker who does an excellent job on advising me. Several friends have sold in a falling market and lost a lot. The best thing to do if you don't need the money for some emergency is to wait it out and it will return.
