This latest big market "Wheee!" has me nervous. Our monthly 401K contributions are still going in, but we have some longer term very safe stuff maturing now/soon and I can't help wondering whether we should wait for a correction to invest it in stock funds.
Except I think that is the dreaded "market timing."

Do you have a long-term AA (asset allocation) strategy? If so perhaps you should dollar-cost ave your future investment purchases consistent with that AA. Most do not consider such portfolio re-balancing to be "market timing".

The cost of waiting is far higher today than when MM funds were making 2-3%...........
Consult with your own advisor or representative. My thoughts should not be construed as investment advice. Past performance is no guarantee of future results (love that one).......:)
