As for me personally, I started great, and lost all of my gains plus some since March. No sense dragging out the gory details - you can peruse my previous Weekly Update posts throughout the year for those.
All-in-all, it was my first down year since I started investing in commodities in 2005. But it certainly could have been worse - I'll live to see 2009, and that's all you can ever ask for I think.
