It’s not about timing the market; it’s about time in the market—a classic saying in investing, which proves correct time & time again.
Let’s deal in facts and go from there – between June 1979 & June 2020 –all ordinaries has provided double-digit annual returns.
From there, we know that there is more certainty by investing for the long term.
The next layer down is where the work comes for you – what is your risk tolerance, what purpose are you investing for & what are the time frames?
If you know those things, happy days. If you don’t, speak to an adviser.
My recommendation is always to err on the side of caution – no one ever lost too much sleep by having to wait a little longer for their ‘pot of gold’ to flourish.
