"Myself, I've gone through the day trader routine many moons ago and didn't do much better than I would have done by indexing. So now I have a well diversified portfolio and rebalance when certain balances in my funds reach a predetermined profit and buy back in when they are off of their highs and reach a predetermined loss. In doing so, I typically beat the market even with a 60% stock 40% bond allocation." - Josh

That reminds me I think we got like 15% in Nasdaq funds too? We slowly got back into that. We were pretty heavily into techie stuff in the 1990's. We had a large chunk of change in Whew! That was scary! Luckily we got out of that before March, 2001.
