Response to Bernardo de La Paz (Reply #37)

38. Our retirement accounts were essentially flat performance-wise

The past 4+ years because of that volatility. Having experienced 1987, 2000 and 2008/9, and being retired and somewhat dependent on those funds, the frequent multiple percent swings, climbing walls of worry and several sudden corrections (usually related to Trump having said something) turned me into a capital preservation-oriented market timer. Since last March, weve been mostly in bonds and cash. Its been a ridiculously worrisome 4+ years on so many levels. I yearn for boring stability.

Ps all of this started with Comey.
