401K Roll Over

March 13, 2014 Comments off

I completed rolling over my 401K today and instantly lost money. Today was bad all around for the stock market. I was hoping to catch a down turn in the market during the transition so I could buy more shares of my chosen targeted mutual fund then I sold. I missed the a major down turn by about 4 days, then it sprang up higher than I sold for. It has been going down since and I bought in for about what I sold for, but the trend continued and it closed at -1.22%.

But I am not a day trader so this doesn’t bother me too much. The fun is up about 13% since the 2008 crisis. I’ve been investing in the fund for 5 years it has done well compared to the the S&P 500. I’m confident in the management over the long run to make the correct adjustments.
