Is it time to buy yet ? Stocks, bonds? Saw an article in WSJ about bonds being cheap so just wondering.

Unless you have a specific need for a fixed interest income, I don’t think bonds would be at the top of your list. Interest rates will rise more and push bond values down further. Stocks are at some of their most attractive levels in a while, so you could see it as buying at a discount. And even if they dip some more after you buy them, eventually things will pick back up and you’ll be thankful you got them on the cheap.

It’s a good time to buy deflationary investments and hard assets - I would stagger the purchasing out because it’s likely we have more downside coming in the near future.

Bonds - if interest rates rise, bonds will trade at a discount and lose value.
Stocks - probably not, wait until the summer when we’re officially in a recession and watch everyone freak out and buy during the panic.

Can’t keep your money in cash though cause of inflation so who knows.

Personally looking at getting some REIT stocks once the housing bubble bursts, bonds look nice for a stable income stream and minimal risk if government bonds, especially if value means nothing short term to you if retaining to redemption. Stocks may be worth a look in a couple more weeks depending on the outlook of the war in Europe. But definitely can’t hold cash 😅 inflation just eroding the value

I have astonishingly low risk tolerance for being a finance man. I'm not one to play the market; all I do is buy and hold a mix of domestic and foreign stocks and bonds.

Currently studying for the DP-100 exam. Any tips/tricks for studying? I'm currently using the MeasureUp practice test, taking a Udemy course, and looking through the self paced study material.

MeasureUp: a lot of really obscure questions and the documentation references aren't great.

Udemy & Self-Paced Doumentation: very high level and the practice questions are too easy. I could answer most without following the material.

Also, there isn't a lot of overlap between the study materials.
