The previous high for my 401k was in November of 2000 at $208,854.96. Then the market started tanking. It eventually hit a low of $97,805.39. That was a huge drop. Part of that was my fault as my 401k was not as diversified as it should have been. It is more divdersified now. I dumped my company’s stock and I think that has helped. Of course it was partly my company’s stock that took my 401k that high. But now after 5 years, my 401k has reached $209,831.72. Hopefully it will keep going. It kind of sucks that 5 years have gone by with me continually adding money, and I am only now reaching where I had been.
