Every time it appears the stock market is starting to recover, it get's knocked back down by what the media refer's to as "profit takers". I haven't been selling any stocks. In fact I have done more buying in the past six months than I ever have. But, it appears I'm in a minority. What do people do with the money they recieve from all these sales of stock? Apparently, it is not going back into the purchase of other stocks, what with the numbers constantly declining. Is it time to start stuffing mattresses? Excuse me if I sound like an idiot with this question; but I'm afraid when it comes to the detailed in's and out's of the stock market, I am an idiot. Oh well, I'm in it for the long haul. So, I'll just sit back and let it all play out.
