In a few days, the Dow Jones industrial average has dropped more than 1,000 points. In mid-January, the Dow was trading just shy of 16,500. As of 2:30 Monday, the Dow stands at 15,436.06, down more than 260 for the day.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index and the Nasdaq composite have also seen significant declines, as concerns about the global economy, U.S. company earnings and turmoil in emerging markets have unnerved investors. They're watching to see whether the market's performance worsens into what some say is an overdue correction, or a drop of 10 percent.

Are you worried about the market decline? Do you plan to make any changes in your investments? Or do you steer clear of the stock market all together?
