If you bought the S+P 500 in JANUARY of 2000 and held till now you are either losing money or just breaking even. AIM would have had you buy more into the dips in 2003 and 2009 ? and sell some and take profits in 2004 -3006 and during the last upturn. You would have made money with less risk and less emotion.

AIM is not meant and will not work if used DAILY. It is meant to be checked ONCE / MONTH

I find AIM is safer with funds and particularly indexes. They can NOT go to zero like individual stocks can as you buy more as they go down.

Forget all the "improvements" and try to understand standard AIM first. What other method can you use to invest with and not have a "realized " loss EVER ! (yes you will have unrealized losses as you are buying)

You can also buy LARGE, SMALL , FOREIGN, REIT, and you age in BONDS and just rebalance ONCE/ YEAR

Take the road less traveled. It will make all the difference.
