Pull out half my portfolio in October and DCA it back in starting end of November? Election is going to be so unpredictable

Creative, but I think you’re overthinking it if you’re a long term investor.


Agree, don’t time the market

It could also go the other way and you miss great gains.

What’s the point of your investments? If it’s long term growth, I wouldn’t touch it. You’re creating taxable events as well which you should try to avoid as much as possible.


I'm staying in for the gains and just 'hope' if there is a huge crash then hopefully at least break even or small loss. Otherwise get those gains. Made 15% in June with some big bad bets that I should have been smarter about. Would have made 25% otherwise.

If you aren't comfortable with the "risk" and it'll give you peace of mind, then you should. I pulled most of my investments out because I'm planning to buy a house within the next year and would prefer to have more liquid assets. The market isn't going anywhere but it is nearly impossible to time it.

Just leave it.

How can people stay here and and be ok with working so late all the time? & then the pay makes it even worse…

Need some advice from my financially-savvy fish friends.

Have managed to save about $20k over the past few years and want to know best to invest it. I’m risk averse and would like to throw it all in an S&P 500 index fund, but I’ve been waiting for a market correction.

I know the adage is the “time in the market is better than timing the market,” but I’m not sure if that applies to these record highs we’re saying. Should I wait, or not delay at all? Thank you!
