Description

If you are interested in personal finance, you’ve probably heard the term timing the market. There is some debate about whether market timing is a good investment strategy or something impossible, or nearly impossible to do. You probably can't time the market. Unless you’re Warren Buffett which you are not.Even if you’re just a casual observer of economic news, you hear a lot of questions about what’s happening with the stock market or the housing market. These questions create a lot of speculation, but what should the average investor which most of us are, should be doing with our investments based on all of this speculation and crystal ball gazing?By not timing the market are we losing out on price movements that could net us significant market returns?

Should we stick to our index fund or should we all become day traders? It’s enough to make even the soberest long-term investors second guess themselves.We’ve attempted to address some of these issues with our Golden Butterfly, Recession Fire Drill and Investing in the Age of Anxiety episodes. But those episodes have generated some additional questions from listeners about investment decisions and timing the market. We’ll tackle those questions for you.Full Article HereShow NotesAlien Church: A New England style IPA.Cheap Cologne: Matt's own Kolsch.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
