Is it just me, or has the stock market being yo-yoing like crazy? Up a couple hundred points (for the NYSE), down a couple hundred points. Oil prices just swinging around like crazy. I haven’t been able to work up the nerve to check my 401(k) lately, because I’m sure I won’t like what I see.
Nevermind that you’d have to be in fantastic financial shape to buy a house with the economy the way it is lately. Sure, house prices are down, but I don’t like the idea of being on that tight of a financial leash at this point. Especially when renting is so much cheaper!
