I’m looking for some advice on how I should allocate my 401K funds in this market. I’ve lost about 50% since last summer. I’m considering putting everything into the VIP stable fund which is basically a money market for about 6 months and then start slowly moving money back in on a monthly bases like 5K a month. Below are the available funds through my companies plan. I’ve written percentages next to the ones I’m in.
