When the market is going up, do you ever feel optimistic and decide to invest more than usual?
And when it’s going down, do you ever feel nervous and consider selling some of your investments?
On the other hand, maybe you’re the type who aims to buy when the price is at its lowest and sell when it’s at its highest.
The problem with trying to time the market, however, is that nobody knows exactly when the market will rise or fall. It’s impossible to know if the turn will be short-lived or longer-term.
