Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.

I would too, but probably for a different reason. I would think at 20%, I will let it drop a little more then buy. Then it would head back up and I would miss the dip. That is why I just DCA every month. I am already 0-2 on the past 2 years concerning my lump sum Roth contribution. The past few Januarys I had this great idea to wait for a small market pullback and then buy. Ya, that worked out real well. Had to throw in the towel around April 1st the past 2 years because I was running out of time to contribute and the pull back never came.

I'd buy a Rickenbacker bass.
