    EVERYTHING is down this year. It's been a bloodbath. I'd be looking to add to my strong positions if you have the funds laying around.

    He's talking about the stock market. For example, I have a decent number of shares in Apple. It's way down. It is a good time to buy if you're "long" i.e. you believe there is growth ahead and it's a good stock to own. You can buy relatively cheaply.

    Ok, I got you. I'm not going to give up on it. In the long run, it'll rebound.

    20% crash? Who knows how long it could take to get 20% back if so.

    Selfishly, I'm not concerned about the market as a whole. I'm concerned with a few select stocks.

    The market must be performing terribly today. I'm down another 8 cents.
