no, you are not better off than you were 4 years ago because of all the money that was printed by the fed in that time. Inflation has destroyed the value of your investments so even if you are back even or even slightly ahead of where you were 4 years ago in terms of an equal number of dollars, you are still down because of the erosion of the value of those dollars.
