Have 40k sitting in cash in my fidelity. Outside of that, I have 25k invested in Robinhood, 16k invested in fidelity and 18k in my 401k. I got into investing a month ago and I’ve seen some decent returns so far but everything seems overpriced at the moment. I keep waiting for a dip but I also don’t want my 40k to just be waiting around not growing. Should I dump it into index funds until I see a dip in a stock I want and then pull it out and invest? Or be patient and wait for the dip?
