Don’t try to time the market

The SPX is less than 1% off it’s all time high. Nasdaq is ~4% off the ATH and RUT is 5% down. The energy and financial sectors are up more than 25% YTD. Six sectors are up more than 10% YTD. Every sector is in the green QTD and YTD. VIX is at the lowest range it’s been at in more than a year. Doesn’t seem like ‘the market’ is the issue.

Buy leveraged index during dips and never sell. You will double wealth in 5 years. This is long term game.

Just be careful since even the leveraged funds tell you they are not for long term holding.

Looking for some career advice. I have an offer in hand (company a) that would give me a 30 K pay bump + title bump but just started interviewing at one or my target companies (company b). Company A is waiting for me to accept the offer and Company B is super interested but I need to complete two additional interview rounds that won't happen until January. Go with the option that I already have or risk losing this role to pursue a role that might be a better fit?

No real strategic work a such. I'm still entry level though so just want to see if this is how the industry will be going ahead.
