I recently changed employers and I have about 50K in a 401K with my former company. There is no penalty to keep it there, but the plan with the company I now work for has many more options, better returns and lower fees. As far as I know, I can choose when to move the money to my new 401K whenever I want to. I know that it is extremely difficult to predict a good time to move the money, but is there a way to predict when a good time to move it would be? The money could be out of the market for several weeks and with that amount of money, conditions could make a difference. Also, what type of asset class is a good investment at this time (what general type of stocks are undervalued)? My feeling is that I should just move the money as soon as possible and accept whatever happens to the market. It would be ideal to take it out and put it back in after a general drop in prices but that would probably be by pure luck only. I would just like to find a way to buy in lower than the old funds sell for. Most of the money in the current plan is in tech stocks and overseas markets.
