In a strange way this makes me really want to get in NOW. "Money Myth No. 1: This is a Great Opportunity to Buy Stocks If you believe that, I have some real estate in Florida (with just a little water on it) that's also a great buy. If your financial advisor is telling you that now is the time to buy, fire your broker. Are you kidding me?! We know that you are desperate to make back some of your investment losses, but buying stocks in this environment isn't the way to do it. The bottom is nowhere in sight right now, and this is no time to invest new money -- don't let anyone tell you otherwise." That was copied from an aol front page news thing.
