Investing In Stocks: Time Vs. Timing

If you’re just starting out with your investment journey, you’re sure to come across a lot of advice about the seemingly “right” time to invest, and we want to nip this right in the bud!

Entering the stock market can be a disappointing experience unless you take stock (see what we did there?) of everything there is to know about the stock market. There are a lot of terminologies that seem alien, and there is literally too much information to consume. We absolutely get it and we’ll give you this — there is a LOT to know about investing in stocks, and it is difficult to know where to start.

The most important thing, however, is decoding this myth about timing! So stay with us as we explain this.


Our myth of the moment — is timing. This refers to getting into the stock market at the most advantageous times.

But here’s the problem — you cannot time the market, and can at best speculate about existing market conditions. A financial market is a volatile place, and even with seasoned research and advice from veteran investors, you will find that nobody can say with certainty what the best time to invest in the market might be. Even if you predict the best-suited time for your investments to take place, too many peripheral factors exist to offer you complete security.
