In times like this it's important not to panic. To remain calm, a Captain Chesley Sullenberger kind of calm.
A simple "brace for impact" kind of calm.
With that in mind I offer the following kind, humorous, warm, and fuzzy little video.
Which is differnt from the original video I had chosen today. This one did not play well in the "room".
Daily DOW Futures Chart
Daily Crude Oil Chart
So with the DOW collapsing again I am looking to deploy some retirement cash. The last time I did this was Oct 2008.
Then we had Nov 2008. Ouch.
I held through and sold a few weeks ago for a small profit.
This time I'm looking at Canadian Real Estate Investment Trust and Cominar for an income producing long term hold.
We shall see.
