This week the markets and my portfolio experiment are down in the hole.
For those of you who have not clicked the link at the beginning of my portfolio updates for the last few months, you may not realize that each week begins with a song. So this week I include a video to go along with the song, for your audio/video pleasure.
Well the big news this week for my experiment is that Morningstar corrected a significant amount of bad data on their website, resulting in the ETF portfolio leaping from 7th place to 4th.
Even correcting the ETF portfolios performance since May 1st, 2007, it lost value this week, along with all the other portfolios.
It looks like a deal to use our tax dollars to bail out our fine financial institutions is close to being signed so we shall see how investors react next week.
