    That's the question I'm now asking. If the dip is being fueled by tech stocks, is this yet another buying opportunity?

    BTW, I closed both of these positions on split day (Monday), missing this sell-off 100%.

    Profits...

    TSLA: +19.86%

    AAPL: +5.31%

    Both of these are sure winners long-term. Therefore, I shall hold them for the foreseeable future.

    Next long-term target is AMZN. I originally bought in on 15 May 2017 @ 958.03. I then sold on 4 Mar 2020 @ 1,936.05. Waiting on a nice pullback before I buy in.

    God Bless

    I'm going to wait for things to shake out. If I was in the TSP, I would not IFT today in case the sell-off continues into tomorrow. But, that's just me.
    Remember, Mr. Market is closed on Monday. Therefore, selling may continue into tomorrow.

    Looks like it could be a good day to get back on the horse!

    My lesson in March was don't ride it down to a minus 31% again. I still have two IFT's for the month and I might have to use them both.

    But, you would've (and should've) recovered and then some.

    I did very well. Wednesday I was over 9%. So I recovered nicely. Today kicked me in the butt. Don't want to try that again. Took 5 months to get where I was Wednesday. Don't want to do that again.
    May the force be with us.
