Thought I can't deny your strategy is right, I doubt many people have the time or desire to seek and find which companies are near their 52 week lows...and as far as I know mechanical investing just like technical investing...if it's not the same is market timing. If this was her "play" money why not, but this money is important for her life beyond work. That's why I've opened my RIRA with 3k last year all into the VTSMX and will continue to do so until I feel confident enough to venture elsewhere.
