With all the stock market turmoil last week and the downgrading of the U.S.’s credit rating, I am wondering how actively regular families are following or adjusting their retirement funds?
Are you a stick-it-in the account and I’ll look at it when I’m 65?
Do you examine or change your fund distribution yearly?
Are you following week to week? Do you move things to less risky holdings?
Did you pull anything last week? Do you plan to move anything around this week? Or buy low on today?
How much do you think the average family is paying attention to the stock market ups and downs?
