    You'll only see "erosion" of capital if the market fails to regain much of the lost ground from the correction before the end of the financial year - but let's call it what it is ... a drop in capital value because of a drop in the underlying share values. Erosion makes it sound sinister - when it's really just a natural part of the market cycle.
