As you can see, June wasn’t a good month (click on the graphic to view a PDF version).

  1. But June was an awesome month to cautiously rebalance back into stock funds. I shifted about 2% or 3% of my 401k portfolio into stocks (from around 86% to maybe 88 or 89%). Never do too much at once, since you cannot predict the future. Stocks could go down more, and if they do, you want to have some cash left to shift into stocks while they’re low. Dollar cost averaging is the key.
