I've been thinking about the 401K lately. It's been making some money. I just don't trust things here lately, Stocks going up like they are kinda worries me. A lot of wealthy holders are selling off. I took a big hit back in the 90's and lost a good amount of cash. If that happend again I couldn't make it back up at my age (59). Thought about pulling some out but I'm perplexed. How's everyone else felling these days.

I pulled out completely 2 weeks ago. That may have been to drastic a move but I am 57 and I don't want to take a huge hit.

You tell me which tree to climb on opening day to kill a boone and crockett buck, and I'll tell you what the stock markets going to do. What are the chances we will both be wrong?

You should invest based on your situation not what the markets did in 08/09 or are about to do now. The bigger question is how much risk can you take and how much risk should you take?

When do you plan to retire?
Are you on track to have enough saved?

This is why the fall of pensions and rise of the 401k is a great opportunity turned into a terrible reality for most employees.

I just pulled my 401K out of stocks. The market has made a good run the last few years and seems to be at about the peak that it can sustain. I'm 52 and not willing to take the hit that I did in 2001 and 2008. When a ballon is bulging, don't poke it.

You pulled out completely? Was there a penalty or did you reinvest somewhere else????

Really just curious....

Being that close to retirement, i would move my money into more stable funds. You don't have the luxury of 10 years to build it back up.

The wife would like me to get it out and go ahead a pay off our land. I'm just not sure yet. I'm not going to retire, there is no way. I gotta have a reason to get out of bed. I'm going to find another line of work that's not as demanding as what I'm doing now. I could always take some out and pay myself back with interest.

Leader,When I said I pulled out I meant out of stocks. Just moved to safer investments.
