Crash is slow, then crash is fast
Last year I was obsessed with watching the market as I expected serious cliff diving and the market held awfully well. So, I adjusted my thinking to figuring it was going to be a gradual decline and then in the last couple months the decline has been quite rapid overall.
In any event, we are getting awfully close to my S&P 700 target to consider getting back into the market.
I truly have not looked closely at individual stock since before this major decline as I simply wasn't finding anything I liked. I took a quick look at Dell this week and it doesn't look bad to me. So, it is probably time to get back to researching stocks and considering where I might stick some money.
But, I stick hard to a rule that there's no rush. If you miss one opportunity another will always present itself.
Interesting how only 2 or so months ago I was thinking I'd be watching the market for at least another year, and now I'm not so sure.
