My 401K has dropped over 15% YTD and need advice -
1. Would you recommend me sell Vanguard International growth in current balance, or advice me to buy more?
2. A chunk of my new investment is going to institutional 500 Index fund? Would you advice to scale back?
3. Growth Index fund Institutional is biggest allocation in portfolio? Would you advise reducing size there?
4. I know my portfolio is aggressive but how do you rate this approach on a risk scale of 1-10 (10 being highest risk)

Always HODL if you can help it. It's a bear market. Don't let the FUD get you down, just keep DCAing and adding funds to it.

My opinion and not advice by any means...

1. Don't touch or rebalance.

2. S&P500 is fine.

3. I hear right now is a good time to buy growth stocks but not a good time to sell ...

4. Probably a 7-8. I don't really grok why you have retirement date funds. I rated you high because it is aggressive with stocks, not highest because of your selection of index rather than particular market or individual picks.

I even threw in that I was taking a hit with benefits, needing to pay 5k more as compared to my position I was leaving. That’s how I got it to 115k. At my annual I plan to address again, in partnership with the impact this position will have made this past year. What do other creative directors earn, if you don’t mind sharing? Industry av says 136k
