Buy or hold?
« on: April 12, 2017, 05:28:45 PM »
I've front loaded all pretax possibilities this year. 401k, HSA, spouse's IRA.
Market seems to be going limp a bit due mostly to what we thought was going to happen with DC policy. Good to hold future funds in Money market for a bit?

Why would you hold them in the money market?  Even if prices stay flat for the next several months you will still have a positive return due to dividends.

Keep them in the market.  If it does end up dipping, just buy more!
