I know what the previous three fools have posted is true, but I can appreciate the difficulty of putting money into the market right now. Who knows when the war will start, how long it will last or what the exact effects will be. I wish I knew.

I am in the same boat as you with my 2002 contribution. I have committed some of it to DODGX but am waiting to figure out what I will do with the rest. I put most of my 2002 401k (Vanguard) contributions into a money market last year just to feel a little better after the beating I took. I am putting it right back in this year at a lower cost. It may not be the foolish approach but it was nice to take a little break.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
