That particular point one day and down four -- the next and I mean them down 600 points -- up 400 and then down 500 it just makes no offense at all.

By these data date vagaries of another words they might be dollar cost averaging a putting a little in every month.
Should date change that posture or.
No them to over the long term investor in the and a lot of matching in the in the technical sense actually is aided by volatility -- -- a lot fewer shares when not.
When the stock when it bought his way up -- a lot more shares on the stock market way down there's no reason that this continual long term investment program.

The like it always get people.
When you get in these times of trials and tribulations.
At times that try men's souls or at least investors souls.
In the ended there's a tremendous that EM behavioral.
Pressure to say.
Did it don't just did then don't stand there do something -- and them in -- 99% of the time I think the better decision.
-- is don't do something just stand there watch and think about the long term picture actually it's allocated right.
If you're young you can afford a lot and -- you're investing for a lifetime.

And that formula is gonna work as well in any -- -- -- out there.
Actually a couple considered people -- It may not be the best investment strategy ever devised this on a bond index fund on the stock index on in some proportion toward your age.
It may not be the best index.
And the best investment strategy ever -- But the number of strategies that are worse is Internet.
And you know what you've got a pretty good track record that's not bad advice.
