Hi,

This may be a basic question: In the current market with my individual stocks down and mutual funds decimated I'm facing a dilemma: Do I sell shares in my relatively well-performing 529 fund and bond funds to pay my daughter's college expenses, or do I sell the stocks and taking a loss? Any recommendations? Is there a strategy anyone would recommend?

Thanks
