Timing is as important as being right
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every
purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant,
and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break
down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn,
and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones
together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep,
and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep
silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war,
and a time of peace.
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8
Market timing says; if
you are out of sync - you will lose.
You can be in sync and
lose - but if you are unaware of the time for every
purpose you have little hope. Choose an entry
point where you will quickly discover if you are
wrong, If an error has been made, get out and reconsider
all your alternatives.
Any action you take,
or don't take, has consequences. Life is risk.
timing is a way to try and balance investment
risk. It does not matter if
you are involved in a complex derivatives speculation or
you are just buying physical gold.
You have free choice,
but that also means you will gain or suffer from your
choices or lack thereof.
"There is only one basic human right,
the right to do as you please. And with it comes
the only basic human duty, the duty to take the consequences." -
Understand your market
timing choices and you understand much about your
investment risk. There are
cycles within cycles, and many ways to study them
- start now.
