    Correction Losses 5th May 18 at 8:01 AM
    Currently I only invest in active funds in my S & S ISA account and it is 100 per cent in equities. In January at its height the total amount was up to approx 148,000 and after the correction it dropped around 11,000 to 137,000 so a drop of about 7.5 per cent. It is now back up to the original amount at its height.

    I would be interested to know how people fared with global trackers or other passive funds (mainly those invested in 100 per cent equities) during this period of correction?

    I love the expression "correction". Did the Wehrmacht suffer a correction at Stalingrad?
