Long story short, I am 40, figure I have 20 years or so to retire. I am aggressive as I know I have the time to be. I look at my port often enough to see what is going on. Anyway, just did a quarterly review. Last January, I rebalanced, bought some new funds, got rid of some. All funds that I am in I am in for a reason, I did my reasearch. I know I have a few funds, but I am trying to capture classes, size, diversify, etc. Anyway, here is the quarterly, find ticker and 1 year return %.

DODGX -43.3
FAIRX -29.7
HFTFX -33.1
HLEMX -52.3
IXG -54.8
JAOSX -52.8
JMCVX -27.3
JORNX -49.8
LSB1Z -21.8
PVFAX -33.9
RYVFX -34.2
VGTSX -44.1
VPMCX -32.4
WBIGX -52.3
WWNPX -53.2

I know the Vanguard funds overlap, but I only have Vangiard funds in my 401k, thus my choices.

Okay,a s you can see, my portfolio tanked. I know a lot of people have, but am I out of my mind to stary in these funds? Advice?
