I was planning on not making our Roth IRA contributions this year because our accounts are all Small Cap Value and they were doing quite well without any contributions.
Actually, SCV lagged last year so maybe this is exactly the time. OTOH, SCV lagged last year so maybe it's time to question your faith before committing. The loneliness of the long distance value investor when everything else is rocketing.
It also appears to be lagging in the other direction the past week - not going down as much - but I'm not "peeking" enough to confirm that. I've been in SCV since the late 1990s, now in Vanguard's SCV and SLYV - but am looking to lighten up if and when it does go because I don't have as many "can lag for long periods" left to play with.
BTW, if you can afford it don't pass by the chance to take some of "that precious Roth space," as someone I read recently called it. Quite right, tax free gains for life (and beyond!)
