Its time to avoid the index funds. Some predict sideways movement in the broad markets through the end of the year and maybe into 2003 depending on the actual recovery activity. Managed funds should do better in this market. Which index funds -- just stock index funds, or do you include bond index funds and REIT index funds?How likely is it that the "some" have a crystal ball to know exactly what the market is going to do in the future?Who will be able to predict the end of the "secular bear market" in advance? When will it be time to switch back to index funds?I'm not disagreeing with you (I'm a skeptic of the index fund gospel), but you have to admit you just made some controversial statements there.
