Hello everyone,My husband and I live and work overseas, and are exempt from federal taxes. We both have roll-over IRA's and a third account all invested in mutual funds. These funds were purchased before I found TMF, and on the recommendation of a Schwab representation. Each of these accounts started out with around $10,000 each. Today, they are down by 19%-39%. I am learning that index funds are the way to go. I would like to transefer all of these funds (especially the roll-over IRA's) over to an index fund. If I were to sell today, we would have a loss. However, since we will be exempt from taxes for the year 2001, should we sell in 2002 (we move back to the states and will have to pay income taxes) I am assuming that I won't recoup my losses in one year.Please use small words since I am a brand new FOOL.Thank you for any help.
