I was just looking at the NASQAQ Composite hovering somewhere around 2200, and recalling March of 2000, when the index was at... 5048! It's well over eight years, and the index is still down well over 50% from its peak. When will we see NASDAQ 5000 again? 2015? (Of course, it could be much sooner -- it only took a few years to go from 700 to 5000.)
And if you bought at the peak, you must be wondering if you will ever catch up with inflation.
