I wonder what difference it makes when a fund is down 35% YTD?

I just increased my contributions to an S&P 500 index fund from 5% to 10%. With an expense ratio of only .03%, it was by far the cheapest of my 401K options.

And @ Rob G. - I'm not retiring for another 30 years, so I don't care what the YTD is. I'd rather see low prices now, because it'll only increase my profits later.

I drink the index fund kool-aid also. I am 37 years old and have been investing for an eye for (hopefully) long-term gains. However sometimes history does not repeat itself and I am wondering if we are in a similar situation.
