More on the Market Timing

Yesterday was a great example of why market timing can hurt if you do not invest increments. If you would have jumped into the stock market on Wednesday after it went down almost 2%. Thursday it was down approximately 0.7% so by investing in increments you would serve yourself well. Now few people really know what the stock market will do today, but if it goes down again your strategy of investing in increments will work out of great. So it is essential to understand that nobody can time the market--no one is that smart--so do not get too confident in your market timing ability.
