I have a 401k account that has barely changed values (except going downward) for the last 3 years.You are not alone in this problem. The markets have done poorly since 2008. We thought the economy was recovering last year but then came the problems in Europe, which like the mortgage problems in the US will likely take up to 10 yrs to fully resolve.So you must be patient and wait for better times and make the best choices you can in the meanwhile. There are always some stocks that do better than broad indexes in hard times. Those are the ones you need to seek out. I don't know any mutual funds that do that, but there may be some.There is much to be said for picking your own stocks while you wait.
