A Capitalist, Me

So yesterday the Dow went up 195 points / 1.76%, and my nascent IRA jumped in value about that same percentage, which even at its paltry level is a significant chunk of change - enough to by a class card at yoga. (I was curious as to how quickly the IRA mutual fund values were impacted by the market, so I checked this morning - seems like they are closely coupled)

This is the first time ever in my life that I have given a damn what the stock market was doing. And I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
