    I’m holding everything and honestly not paying any attension at all to what my stocks and mutual funds are doing.  I view them as long term investments and don’t pay attention to the constant ups and downs.

    ETA: I guess technically I just bought some stock because our company stock purchase program reached the yearly purchase date at the end of July.  But that is automatically timed/dictated and I get a big discount on the purchase price.

    Well, I have decided there is no longer any moral hazard in the market, so I am holding and will be making my retirement contribution soon (hopefully at a nice discount) on the assumption that the government will do anything to bail out wall street and screw main street.  I’m sorta damned if I do, damned if I don’t, so since last time they let the taxpayer hang while they threw billions into bailing out the banks (bitter!) I have decided up is down and down is up so f* it.

    Buying. Many stocks are down. Great time to get a good deal for the long-term.

    I’m just going about my usual investing business, but if I had some extra money sitting around then you can bet I’d be buying!

    Holding.

     

    If I were still working I’d be buying, but since I have no income at the moment I am just holding.

    I won’t be retiring for about 40 years, so I’m definitely holding! Also looking forward to the dip for the next few cycles of my 401k contributions. The downs are great opportunities when you are young and wanting to buy more shares for less.

    I put mine into annuities and IUL’s, so the stock market can’t eat any of my money

    I’m in the industry, if you haven’t sold by now, you would doing yourself more harm than good by selling at this level. Hold on. If you know what you are doing, this is actually an amazing opportunity to buy. Some companies are extremelly undervalued right now despite better than predicted recent earnings reports, it’s a great opportunity to get in.

    I’m holding. I mean, technically each bi-weekly contribution to my fund enables it to buy more, but I don’t actively manage my own portfolio beyond deciding what % goes into which funds. Right now I am in a see no evil/hear no evil mind set. If I just ignore the market, maybe it will stop screwing me?
