So it's not in any of the seasonal mixes.
My guess is people are panicking about Trump -- things look less than ideal. Markets haven't done too hotly since he took office. International has been doing pretty well this year so far.
For me, if I had to choose a single month to be in the I Fund, it would be April, hands down. But that's the only month I would consider.
See my thread for more info on how the I Fund performs going back to 1988 (linked in my signature). I think it's post #9.

Note that I'm actually not a supporter of the I Fund and so I find this webpage more informative than negative/positive in influencing my bias. Typically I have shied away from the I Fund, but as I've said numerous times, I have a good feeling about this year. Maybe the positive news about Japan or the fact that the UK is close to its trough (in my opinion) is that from here it can almost only go up...(were my famous last words).

I feel the same, cswift01. I'm liking I Fund this year and will look to be in and out of it throughout the year.

My feeling is the US will have a rocky ride, which is why I'm thinking to why the i might be better. Of course there are many other reasons. Rome wasn't destroyed in a day.
