I put some money in a sp index fund end of December and it's up over 15% . Is this go up too fast in 3 months ? Would you sell off? This is in IRA brokerage so no realized capital gains tax

If you are 15 up, I would take it and laugh all the way to the bank. Especially if you have another opportunity you want to pump the gains into.

What's your planned asset allocation in your IRA, and how far off from it are you? That is what should determine whether or not you sell, not daily market fluctuations.

I would take some off, but not going to cash 100%. My account has been up 15% too. I’m happy to just have 15% for the year.

Leave the money in the S&P Index fund, and continue to contribute to it on a regular basis. The whole purpose of an index fund is to benefit from the long-term upward trend of the market, without the overhead of an actively managed fund.

Market went on a pretty good rally last week. You should be a little better off.
