Its very hard to get a sense of when an index is a good buy, hich is why I concentrate on individual companies. In my 401k I just set my contributions to heavy index allocations and ignore it. Maybe I'll look at the balances every month or so to make sure they really did deposit the money. After all, if you've got 10 or more years to go, what is there to get upset about?
