The bonus check should be here this week, so I am getting ready to make my 2003 Roth deposit. We have 12 years to retirement. Should I:

1. Invest it now.
2. Wait until the war starts
3. Wait until the war is over.

Any opinions would be appreciated.


Hello,

The most important thing is that you make the contribution. Regarding your 3 choices, another possibility would be to invest a third now, a third when the war starts, and a third when its over. A mini-dollar cost averaging strategy based around your particular concerns.
