Timing the market may not be a wise move.
There are at least a few factors to be considered:
- what’s the purpose/objective of the investment?
- is it a single sum investment or regular contributing investment (dollar cost averaging)?
- what sectors are you investing in? Heavy in bonds or equities?
Just as important: what’s your risk profile?
These are the few factors minimally to be considered before you decide to buy or sell, or to hold.
