For one day it is. Most I've ever seen it move is 150 points since I've been watching it a few years.

The news that my accounts were all up about 20% last year is short lived I guess. It's a good thing that I'm a conservative investor or I'd be freaking out right now.
Times like this there's only one thing to do; invest.

Ya, as long as you are dollar/cost averaging, you should be ok.

Well the stock market had been setting records every day, so i guess a correction was in order.

Yes and no.
As a long term investor I can see such investments considered a bargain 5-10-15 years from now.
If I was looking to make a quick profit, which I'm not, I'd be worried that I'd lose in the short term.
If you noticed, the Dow has gained 100pts back since today's low. That's people trying to capitalize on today's downswing.
