You are more than likely a lot older than him and you have different goals.Mines at 13%, you are doing better than me. I am sticking 20% a week into it. The balance the last couple of days has put a smile on my face. I do the S&P 500, S&P 400, Russell 2000, and I have about 40% in international funds. The only thing down recently was my IRA investments because of UPS stock dropping. I bought $500 worth of Litecoin and Ethereum a year ago to play with Cypto a little bit, its up to $786 right now.
You don't put everything all in one investment. Sometimes having a little cash doesn't hurt either. Remember what your 401k looked like a decade ago? It wasn't easy to watch.I don't think its wise to put everything in US stocks either, you are right about growth potential in world markets.
I think you’ll get out before it happens and it won’t take too long to recover but great buying opportunity.If it does, I will just have to work a little longer. Not because I need the money. What I need in liquid cash is almost where I want it to be. I just don't want to miss an advancement opportunity
