Thanks for the input, all. I almost did a similar thing this spring with an ETF when what had been a loss for a couple of years, started approaching the green again. I decided if it could move north enough to get me even it could move north enough to make me some actual money. I held and it has.
So you're voting on a psychological pitfall then too?
Neophyte question here: I often see people post about how a stock was down and they dump it when they get back to par for them. Is this more a psychological pitfall of investing vs. a smart move?
