No linking in this post, just a quick hitter. We've crossed the 11k mark on the Dow Jones Industrial Average for the first time since May! YAY! That's terrific! We should pop the champagne corks and throw a big party! Except, hold the phone, the dollar lost 10% from about mid-August until the end of September. So, if you paid $100 for a stock in May, watched it sink, and then go back up to $110 bucks, did you gain anything?
I didn't think so either.
