Not a capitalist, but....

I took advantage of last week's stock market belch to dump the last $1300 of my 2006 IRA contribution into a couple of funds which had tanked - and now each of them is up significantly. (One is up about 7% from when I added the funds) so I am feeling pretty punk about that.

It was none of my doing - I needed to get the money in my tax day and I have not had a spare $1300 lying around until recently (I also got my 2007 quarterly IRS payment in a month early, and pumped up my HSA account a bit)

But its nice to be on the positive cycle of whatever is goin gon in the world of money rather than on the negative cycle, which has heretofore been my wont.
