    Around 400K so far. Oh, and both of the businesses we own are completely shut down now.

        And probably even a little better today.

          $10,000 realized loss (combined taxable & retirement accounts). I did miss out on the massive gains on 3/24/20 & 3/25/20.

            i checked a couple of days ago and had chest pains. I had a mild panic attack because my DH and I hadn't looked. He still hasn't looked and I haven't told him. His 401k was down over $300k because I invested him mostly in total stock market index in his 401k. Part of our easy portfolio building. We also lost probably around the same in roth and taxable. I haven't the nerve to really watch right now. It's not like I'm going to do anything more than keep investing.

              Updated this morning - excluding 529s which I don’t track as part of our portfolio totals - we’re @ -14.7% YTD. Including YTD contributions as offsets, we’re down $564k. Hard to stomach, but we rode out 2008 and we’ll ride this out as well .

                It is much more fun to look at the portfolio when things are going up. (Lately, I think of the chorus of Johnny Cash song Ring of Fire every time I look at our portfolio. )

                We had a slight reprieve this past week and I thought about making adjustments. I don't like seeing the stock going down, but it hasn't changed our fundamental plan. We should re-balance because we are 5% off our allocation. But, I don't want to buy more equities on an "up" week and also (in general) I don't think we've found the bottom, yet.

                So, I came to the same conclusion as you did. I am following the advice of Don't just do something, stand there!

                  sounds like a game plan. Wait. Sit and maybe watch.

                    Ohmigod! What % of his 401K is the 300K?

                    You aren't close to retirement, are you?

                      Well Vanguard Total Stock index is down 22% YTD, and was probably off a little more a few days ago, so maybe 25%. That would mean about a $1.2 million balance originally. Is that about right LAL?

                        Thanks for doing the math for me, Steve!!! I just realized that srblanco7 must have started with a 4 million dollar portfolio! His loss is more than what I have!

                            I've recovered some in recent days but am still down in the neighborhood of 90K.
                            I'm heavy in stocks so it's not a shock.
                            Retirement is a couple decades off, so I'm not losing any sleep yet

                              End of the month, did my monthly finances. Year to date, im down $114K. That was a bad month, but could have been worse if it wasnt for the couple day bounce. Was down $73k for the month.

                                down around $260k now. That's not including what went in. Sigh. Anyway what hurts the most is the kids savings. Here's hoping i make it back in spades The DK1 ESA invested $2k/year since 2010 is still up! But down $9k from Feb 1st. DK2 ESA invested since 2012 is down $6954 but still positive $500. It's something. I'm leaving them both in VTI which is what they are both completely 100% in for ESA, 529 is VOO down from $6k this year to $4878 and taxable is VTI. Both at a loss, but what can you do? I could tax loss harvest but I don't know that it's worth it for them.
