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.
