I think that hurt.

So the stock market tanked today and, accordingly, my 401(k) felt some small amount of pain.

Balance on market close yesterday: $106,818.40
Balance on market close today: $102,976.52

Net loss in one eight hour period: $3,841.88

That stings just a little! At least I didn't lose more than I and $EMPLOYER put into the fund since the beginning of the year, so from where I stand I'm still coming out ahead. If I'm lucky I'll be able to cash in on these depressed prices when my next contribution for the fund goes through.
