Why Taking the Emotion out of Your Withdrawal Decisions is Essential

Moving large sums of cash in a down market incurs losses and often creates costly re-entry once markets have already begun to rebound.  Taking your time and looking for ways to economize in other areas like travel and vacation expenses, luxury items, and dinners out can help mitigate the amount of money you pull out of the market, helping to preserve your gains.
