Investors Crash Course – Part 4

Stock-market-timing

Although it’s very tempting to try to time the market, in fact it’s virtually impossible to do it successfully. Far better than focusing on short-term ups and downs is to invest for the long term. Part four of our series looks through stock market history to show that it’s not TIMING the market, but TIME IN the market that really counts.

My hope is that this series will help ordinary investors to see through the marketing and media hype and make better investment decisions as a result.

I am grateful to Sensible Investing TV for permission to include this video series within the Wealthflow blog.
