JABoa and all, I must apologize for not reading the entire post by Selphiras. What I read was the second post in the thread, which only included part of the original question. That is what I based my answer on. Taking into account there's an end load to this fund makes JABoa's point easier to relate to.

Also, I should have also pointed out to wait until Feb, in order to capture long term cap gains tax rate.

The principle of staying out of the market if you have short term needs may not apply as much with a 3 year window, but Selphiras needs this money in 9 months, which increases the risk more so that 2-3 years.<
