Your 401 (k) Goes Bungee Jumping

It was the night before Christmas and the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 653 points. But the day after Christmas the bull bounced back for a record 1,000 point gain. Alas, the stock market December to remember continued as the Dow dropped 600 points the following morning. But not to worry. Late in the day the Dow made a record 850 point u-turn to finish with a 260 point gain.

Sleep in heavenly peace.
