Please help. I am twenty-five years old and have a ROTH IRA invested in mutual funds. How "WISE" I am! My domestic stock fund boasts of 16.93% average annual return since inception 10/71. But of course, year to date it is down 14%. I have almost $2,000 in my account so far and faithfully contribute to it ecery month in the amount of 166.66.
Can I start a foolish four portfolio with this small amount? Please help me. I know this is short term fluctuation, but I know I could be doing better on my own. But do I haveenough to get started!
