Poor Buy/Sell Timing

An interesting piece from ValueWalk:



It’s been mentioned many times, here and elsewhere, that simply putting money into the market is the best strategy to invest and performs better than trying to time the market or choose individual stocks. This is coming off Warren Buffett pulling ahead of the hedge fund of hedge funds. I have an inkling that most people here will agree with this.

    One problem with trying to time the market is you need to be correct twice.  Once when you buy, and again when you sell.  A lot of people may be lucky to get one correct, but getting 2 correct is the interesting part.

      But less than my mortgage rate! I’ve got to at least beat that (or aggressively pay it down, as the blogosphere dictates).
