Timing the market and getting best prices?

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Reader says...
Is has been awhile since my last email.

I wasn't dare to take the big move to go ahead into investment.

I know very little about Mr.Market. which I decided to be so call "safe" to put majorly of all cash in bank.

Which I know I know, is very wrong.

I monitor Mr.Market for awhile and didn't act on it. facepalm.

I started to look into low risk investment such as REIT.

I am still get lost when i try to follow your blog from the start.

I know is a lot to ask but could you advice me information/link I can look into.

Maybe can share with me how to see a good entry price, any index I could by buy monthly?

Unfortunately, I am not allowed to give specific advice and, so, I won't.

I am not very good at timing the market and getting in at the best prices myself.

Read more, learn about valuation and you should have an idea of what are fairly good prices to pay for investments but remember we cannot always get it right.

It is a lifelong learning process.

You can start by reading the books I have listed in my blog's right side bar under "Food for thought".

Hi AK,

I am of view that regular investment on a monthly basis is the way to dividend growth investment. There is no need to bother about timing the market for the best price. The best time to invest is the present.

My two cents worth of view.

Hi Ben,

I don't know if it is the best way but it is one possible way to do it. :)
