I’ve added an article to the Safe Investing section of the site titled How to Invest Wisely — RobCasts on Market Timing, True Diversification and Dollar Cost Averaging.
Juicy Excerpt: Have you ever considered that the “experts” employed by The Stock-Selling Industry might not really want you to learn how to invest wisely? The academic research of the past 30 years (rarely discussed by most “experts”) shows that the key is taking the price being charged for stocks into consideration when setting your stock allocation.
That is, you don’t want to follow a Buy-and-Hold strategy of staying at the same stock allocation at all times. You want to go with a higher stock allocation when prices are good and a lower stock allocation when prices are bad. That’s the secret of how to invest wisely!
This article sets forth brief descriptions of RobCasts exploring three key topics: (1) Market Timing — What Works and What Doesn’t; (2) True Diversification; and (3) Dollar Cost Averaging.
