Added to my BPOP stake. I'd love to buy some other stuff, but I am restricted at the moment.

Re: Any One Buying?

I'm just letting my automatic monthly investments do their thing. Unfortunately, that means my 401k invested on May 11, when things were still pretty high. Had another $400 invest on Monday, and another $900 is going in on the 22nd.

I've thought about deferring my automatic investments and just doing them manually, on days when the market is down. But if past experience has taught me anything, that usually gets me nowhere, and my best strategy is usually to just do nothing at all, and let the investments go in at their regular intervals.

Andre,

"DCA" = dollor cost averaging (essentially what you are wisely doing by leaving the automatic deposits alone).

Set it and forget it.

Re: Any One Buying?

Twice a month through the end of this month, then I won't be buying until I find another job. Looks like my timing, as usual, sucks. But it's a life move, not a market move.

Oh, I've been DCAing into my standard passive mix of funds.

Re: Any One Buying?

DCA'ing - and drooling a bit. Wish I had more cash! Not quite a fire sale, but things are heating up (or, cooling down, depending on how you want to look at it!).

Re: Any One Buying?

DCA'ing a little here, and a little there. No big investments, but gradually putting some of the dry powder into the markets (been sitting on plenty the last few years). It's annoying to see my YTD percentages cut in half after this past week, but a "buying opportunity" just means that such percentage will go even higher once the current correction has run its course.

Re: Any One Buying?

It's a little less fun for those of us who are no longer adding to our stash but I expect it will all come out in the wash. It's probably the fault of currency-manipulating elitist liberals anyway...oh sorry, wrong thread

Still keeping my powder dry. I think we have another week or two of this.

I'm about to jump out the window (luckily, we only have one story). I followed CFB's advice, and put everything into INTC.

Just kidding, but it's starting to look pretty sexy to me.

Re: Any One Buying?

I'm planning to add more VWO and VBR, and since moving out of my 401k's Intl Blend with the 0.7% ER, I'll be adding to the Intl with EFA and PID. Own a bit of EFV, but for an ETF with an alleged value tilt, it has the lowest dividend of the three...
