As 2019 rolls around, I am again allowed to contribute to my 457 retirement account...

I know veteran Fools believe that timing the market is foolish...

But here is what I am thinking....

instead of contributing the regular 15% per paycheck...wouldn't it make more sense to try and maybe contribute 40-50% per paycheck if the market continues to decline....?

isn't the objective is to get the money in good when the market is down?

get most of the maximum contribution in the first 3 months of 2019?

Am I being foolish?
