Your growth percentage would stay the same but with less shares your total fund will grow slower. 5% on 1000 shares will be less than 5% on 1200 shares as an example.

    Not suggesting anything but just giving you an example.

    Good luck. I've been in the 100% S fund since March and I'm getting my butt kicked. ;swear
    Hey nasa, that's not quite correct.

    When an assets price per share moves 5%, everyone's portfolio value moves 5%, regardless the number of shares. This principle is why the AutoTracker can track a portfolio even though it doesn't track the number of shares per portfolio.

    For further example:

    10 shares vs. 100 shares of the same asset valued at $100 per share. Suppose the asset moves 5% to $105.

    10 shares were worth $1000, and are now worth $1050. A 5% increase.

    Vs:

    100 shares were worth $10,000, and are now worth $10,500. A 5% increase.

    So what I'm hearing is that I'm not going to lose money. It's more of a matter of which fund I think is going to do better.

    It may change today, but I'm doing pretty good this month with a 3.72% return. Currently I'm at 100% I Fund.

    Though, I'm glad to see the highs, I don't trust them and I'm too close to the end to lose a lot of money (again). Cutting back to 50% S, 50% G.

    I hate to get out of the S Fund today and lock in a multi-day loss, but I'd planned to go into the G-Fund until the first week of February anyway. Besides, my brother-in-law, who knows much more than me, just called and said "move to safety." Who knows? I think there's a tendency for critics to believe that a large majority in the market have become complacent, but my thought is that most are just riding the wave and have an itchy finger on the exit button. We may indeed see a mass exit real soon.

    I'm glad I'm in the F Fund again today. I think dip buyers have waded back in a little too early.

    I don't think there's going to be a huge rally worth buying into in the next few days, so
    I'm reluctant to leave the F Fund. I'm enjoying a quarter of a percent here and there. Futures don't appear to be very strong as I'm writing this, considering the massive dump we've all witnessed.

    At the time of you writing this, futures were up over 2.5%. If that wasn't the number you saw at the time, be sure you are following this:

    Hi, Futures still don't look that good on this site but I noticed you posted it a few days ago and wanted to say thank you. It's a good resource site and better that MarketWatch I believe.
    Anyway, I do appreciate the site suggestion and I'm glad that we have guys like you on board. I don't think anyone will be taking your Armalite Rifle 14 from you!

    No, I saw those numbers, but I wasnít very clear. What I was trying to say was that even though futures were up at around 2.5%, I didnít consider that a strong indicator for how the markets would trade the next day given the broad swings weíve been witnessing. In other words, I chose not to trust the futures.

    I donít trust the numbers today either, regardless of what it looks like at the opening bell. I think itís a crap shoot. Everything can change mid-day with a tweet or a news article.
