I've just stumbled upon your exchange, and I'm one of those people whose
been putting $300 a month in a 403B and watched it drop like a rock.
 However, the list of funds that I have to choose from does not include
a no-load fund. And I keep re-running in my mind the old addage "buy
low sell high", so I feel like I should just stay with the funds I've
got. By the way, I'm in my fifties, so you can imagine the stress I'm
feeling. I really don't expect a reply; I'm just venting. J.
