    New to this forum and the whole idea of moving money around just looking for some information.

    I transferred all my money out of the I fund Friday morning on the advise of a coworker, just wondering if I made the right move and when I should look at going back in.

    Thanks for the help

    If you moved out Friday morning, you made a great move.

    You made a good move. I was seriously thinking moving Friday but I kept to my plan which stated no moves until Tuesday (15th) and only if it triggers one on my moves. THis caused me to lose all gains so far this year but will prevent me from losing a bunch more.

    Im out of I fund for at least until April 15 and then the model will determine if I am back in or to extend my safety plan a little bit longer. My stop-loss was actually reached on Friday but the restrictions to only trade twice a month limit when i activate trades. This took a lot of restraint and in hindsight I wish i had traded Friday, but I am committed to the plan I researched and instituted for at least another 3 years.

    Nobody can predict the future, but past history indicates that there will be a rebound later this year. This comes from the 2007/2008 crash or the 1995 quake in Japan which all showed huge losses for a month or more than a massive rebound. I hope I catch most of the rebound

    Who would've thought we'd ever be grateful for ONLY a 2.2% loss in the International Fund? Ouch!

    Man you must be crazy - why would anyone in their right mind want to own the I fund particularly now that prices are golden.

    The share prices haven't been posted yet. I'm guessing they are trying to figure out what price to put on the I-fund. Why don't I trust them?

    I think it may have something to do with daylight savings time. Everything should be pushed back an hour from where it was.........

    Maybe we won't get a big -FV today. They probably are on hold in a call to Bernake to help them calculate an unfair value according to the FED's inflation index...... My guess is the only fair value will be to Barclays.
