I’m losing money in one of my investments. Should I sell and invest in something else?

Long-term investing can be nerve-wracking at first. You may see an investment lose value and be tempted to sell. Ultimately, when you sell your investments is up to you. However, we recommend holding investments for the long-term and learning more about dollar-cost averaging and volatility. An investment that is down today may be up tomorrow, and an investment that is up today could lose value tomorrow. This is all a part of learning to invest.
