Are You a Market Timer?

The avoidance of Market timing is by far the hardest aspect of investing. Market timing requires the most prudence, the most disciplined, the most long-term vision in order to not fall prey to this hideous transactal technique. When you consider our fast changing social, political, and economic climate, coupled with a 24 hour news cycle. It’s not a stretch to wonder why people are constantly trying to time the ebbs and flows of the market in order to protect their balances or try to capture more return. Market timing you have to be right twice when you get in when you get out,  additionally paying for the extra trades involved.
