Wow, this was an expensive time to leave society for 2 weeks

I just lost a lot of money in stock-based accounts.

Even the most conservative stocks and mutual funds have bombed recently, and there’s no end in sight. I’m fairly new to this world, but I don’t want to ride this down any more… I think I’ll pull most of it out soon/now and buy back in when the market’s in an upswing.

Is my only hope a 4% CD at this point, or am I missing better options?

(Also, screw taboos. I’m talking about money. Next, I’ll address religion, politics, and whatever diseases killed your loved ones.)
