Yup… and I just resigned from my job (tomorrow is my last day).

I’m almost into full fledged panic mode.

I was planning on getting a new job in Oct after we moved… now who KNOWS what will happen.

@totheislnds: I deal with this.  I am all over this long time horizon / not reacting to temporary market swings, but that doesn’t mean I don’t get a lot of stressed out phone calls!  and it’s so much nicer to see accounts going up than down.

@Moose1209: True… it’s like I’ve come full circle. I started in finance in 2008 (having never worked in financials before) and tomorrow is my last day.

We are also riding it out I’m really going to have to work hard not to look at my investments tomorrow because it’ll be really depressing.

Today isn’t much better either.

I was hoping the jobs report would turn things around a bit…

No, but I have like 95% of my money in the market right now (besides the equity in my house), and i just about wanted to slam my head into a wall after yesterdays performance in the market.
