    A year ago this week the financial meltdown occurred.
    I lost 70% of my net worth.
    You know who I blame for it?





































































    Nobody.

    I called my broker in July '07 and told him to take half my IRA holdings out of mutual funds and put it in a CD. He asked "why- because the DOW lost 100 points yesterday?" I reminded him that oil was at $140, housing was overheating, and talk of a credit problem is all over the media. His response- "whatever".

    Called him back a year later and told him to take the CD and put it back in mutual funds. LOL saved my self a bundle.
