No matter where you look, there are signs that a recession is on the horizon, if not underway already. The question facing many investors is since we know a downturn is approaching, (if not already here) why not wait until things get better before investing?
The answer to that is specific to each investor and their situation, but in most cases I believe the following to be true:
The risk of missing out on the eventual recovery, is greater than the risk of continuing detoriation.
There are countless examples throughout history, of the perils of missing out on market recoveries and doing so makes success, exceedingly more difficult to achieve.
When times are tough, stick to you plan, and when times are easy, you will be rewarded for it.
