Hi everyone. Is anyone here, other then myself, invested in the stock market? I've been dabbling in the stocks since 1985. Overall, I've done fine, but I've never seen it so volatile as I have lately. Use to be some minor ups and downs, but now it thinks nothing about dropping 700-800 points in one day.. A few days in the row at that. I think some gains for the year have recently been erased. I have no desire to bail out. It will come back. It always does. Besides, what would you do with the money anyway?? Savings accounts are paying about 0.75% interest. A 12 month CD in my area is paying 2.50%. Then there is this Bit Coin-crypto currency which I try to understand, but don't. Sounds like a Ponzi scheme to me, Carmine.
