About 4 or 5 years ago, I started investing a small amount of money monthly through sharebuilder. I haven't added anything to it in over a year. All of the stocks and ETFs I invested in are at a loss except for the S&P 500. This just keeps going up, up, up!
My plan has been to hold these stocks and ETFs until they go positive and then to sell them. The S&P 500 is the only one to go positive.
Now I'm debating if I should sell. I don't really know how it works, but if I sold right now I would see a $375 gain. I'm sure that amount gets taxed.
Is it better to hold onto it for "some day" down the road or just sell it when I know I can make something off of it?
