I have (unFoolishly) not put my 401k into an index fund for the past year (inception of my employment at this company) .. although it still worked out OK, as my return was approx. -7%, instead of the -8.51% the (SP500) index fund came through with so far. However, I would like to follow the Fool's rule of mutual funds and simply have only the index fund. I currently have the $$ spread thoughout 8 different funds of varying return ranging from a high of +5.76% to a low of -39.05% (luckily only 3% of my funds are in this one .. whew!). Historically, each of the 8 funds are good performers in the 3, 5, & 10-year avg annual returns.
My question therefor is: Do I just transfer all to the index fund, or wait to at least break even on each fund before transferring ???
