Roth IRA...should I pull it?Submitted by LibertyFalcon on Sat, 04/14/2012 - 22:25
I've got under $10,000 in my employer matched Roth IRA account, and for a while now my mind has been racing. I remember talking to my parents after the market tanked in '08 and how much capital they lost. I feel the US Dollar is headed for a cliff within the year if things don't change. The stock market will, in turn, also take a similar and harder nose-dive than '08. Do I pull what I have and buy gold/silver? Do I let it ride and hope for a sunny outcome?
Looking for some opinions or guidance. Individuals who lost a ton in the '08 crash out of their 401k's, mutual funds, etc...what's your hindsight? Anyone else in a similar situation?
