Target-Date Funds Are Tanking, But Don’t Throw In The Towel
Run the market straight up for months on end to unsustainable heights. Than “wring your hands in richeous indignation” on a little correction (quote borrowed from @Ted). For the year TRRIX is off about 2.8%. Me about the same. It’s a 40/60 fund. But I suspect you can find quite a few 60/40 funds off just as little or even less.
So since when does a 3 or 4% dinging over a one year period constitute “tanking”? A cliche in sports is “Act like you’ve been there before.”. Might also apply here.
@ johnN : can you help me out as you're a TSP user?
Thanks , Derf
