I am debating whether to convert my aggressive growth to an S&P Index fund. I have been staring at same balance for about a year in my aggressive growth fund and thinking to myself is the fund eating my contribution.

My my aggressive growth fund is down 60%, so staying even isn't too bad. Luckily it is a small part of my asset allocation, the bulk being in a S&P500 index.

You propose to move your aggressive growth money to an S&P index fund. Is this because of fear, frustration, or to put your asset allocation in line with where you think it should be?

Plan your moves around logic and analysis. Don't panic. In other words, if the aggressive growth funds are way down, it might be time for them to move up. Certainly many will say that they can fall further, which is true. Make sure that you're pleased and confident in your overall asset allocation.
