Standard & Poor’s 500 Composite Index (S&P 500) is a market capitalization-weighted index based on the average weighted results of approximately 500 widely held common stocks. This index is unmanaged, and its results include reinvested dividends and/or distributions but do not reflect the effect of sales charges, commissions, account fees, expenses or taxes.

Dollar-cost averaging cannot guarantee a profit or protect against a loss, and you should consider your financial ability to continue purchases through periods of low price level.

Every investor’s situation is unique and you should consider your investment goals, risk tolerance and time horizon before making any investment. Keep in mind that there is no assurance that any strategy will ultimately be successful or profitable nor protect against a loss.
