Looking for some advice. Currently contributing 10% to 401k and maxing out Roth IRA, and remainder of savings (usually $800-$1200 per month) putting in a HYSA for a down payment on a house. Hoping to buy in 2-3 years once we (partner & I) have a sizable down payment. Should I continue to put all my non-retirement savings in an HYSA for a downpayment or should I also contribute to my brokerage and invest to grow wealth? (24yo, $85k)
Looking at 401k. Some funds are -10%+ YTD, others are -1% YTD. Does that mean there is more upside to the -10%+ YTD funds? I'm staying away from energy ones, but looking at VEIRX, -17% for the year
