chrispy Posted March 8, 2020 Share Posted March 8, 2020 If a person only has access to basic index funds in an employer retirement account, what would be considered a successful trade? The primary goal of buying individual companies is to outperform the S&P each year. So would selling and buying in after a 1 percent drop be considered a success? This would represent beating the S&P by 1 percent this year. Should the person simply be content with this mild outperformance even if they expected the market to drop further?
