Still Investing

June 2nd, 2011 at 01:50 pm

I know the market is all haywire. And likely due for some sort of correction. However, here in the CreditCardFree household we are still investing. Every month.

We contribute 15% of our gross income to our Roth IRA's and my husband's TSP. Why not buy on sale? We have more than 25 years until we need the money!

We are also still adding to the college funds. This is a little more iffy, since the time horizon is shorter. The earliest we would need the money is 4.5 years, but we could hold on to most of it for up to 9 or 10 years, when the youngest is in her last years of college.

For now, we keep investing. Automatically. Every month. On sale! Are you still in the market for the long haul? If not, why not?

    We're dedicated dollar-cost averagers like you. Boringly regular and worry-free, I think. In the years I worked in brokerage, I saw too many people trying to outsmart the market. I just don't want to dedicate my time or my attention to such a dismal proposition.

    Yes, steady and true on course. Retirement isn't all that far away anymore...though some days feel further away than others :-)
