Stock Market Timing

If you follow the stock market at all you will have noticed that today and yesterday have been awful days for the market (S&P 500 index). As a note: Pay more attention to the S&P 500 index than the Dow Jones index. The S&P 500 is a broader index than the Dow Jones and is more representative of the market in general than the Dow.

As we have mentioned before it is difficult to impossible to time the market. However, if you strongly believe this is an aberration and that the U.S. economy is healthy as is the stock market then this trough is your opportunity. But beware because when Bears (A down trending market) like this come up many investors panic and dump stocks. Therefore, you must weigh the risks and rewards of investing at times like these.
