|Hi Loren, Just seeing this comment now.
Recently those jumps have been in gains. I am invested about 95% stock index funds (mostly S&P500 or total market indexes) and when the market goes up 1 to 2 % a month that is a $10k to $20k increase right there.
That said, both my wife and I have been maxing out both our 401ks and IRAs when possible, as well. |
