    Lock down your investment objectives

    Dear teachers

    In the following headline, what does "lock down" actually mean? I looked up the dictionary, which says a "lockdown" is a situation in which people are not allowed to enter or leave a building or area freely because of an emergency.

    "Lock down your investment objectives with index tracking funds"

    Please kindly advise the meaning. In case other words (secure/set/target) I can use to replace "lock down" , please also advise.

    Regards

    Holden

    'Phrasal Verbs:
    lock down
    2. To arrange or secure (something) so that it does not change or can't be undone.'
    ── quoted from http://www.thefreedictionary.com/lock+down

    Can 'securely fix' be used instead in this context? Not a teacher.
