Thanks for the advice but I'm not worried. Its not my money!

Thanks for the advice but I'm really not worried. I was just mentioning my experience with mining stock in reaction to the article. Anyway, its not my money, but a fund set up by my workplace without my participation. It grew very little over 10 years in a treasuries fund, but when we changed over to a new mutual fund manager I got a chance to play with it and moved it over to mining stocks and "emerging markets", both categorized as "high-risk" by the firm. Up 14%, down 17%. Whatever. Its been interesting looking at the market and seeing so much volatility in a place that should be stable considering the demand for metals for tech and investment.
