wiseinvestor For those without excess cash for buying and holding on to blue chips, you can still use index funds for this market cycle investing.
For a diversified holdings of an index fund, you can use equity risk premium to estimate the top and bottom areas.
This is definitely better than just buy and hold if your investing time horizon is more than 10 years.

Yes, I bought several blue chips when STI was around 1500. My ROI is now over 50%, but I won't sell until the next market craze. I have been a trader once, but I think long term investing is far superior to short term trading provided you have some cash to start with (hint: get a job).

I agree with what the author says, combined with an important point which some readers mentioned - choose the right and good companies to own.

As the investment time horizon is at least 3 years or more.

In my opinion, the market is bottoming. Of course, no one can be sure of when is the exact bottom, but if you can buy near the bottom, you can expect significant gains when the market recovers. I just wrote a post regarding the market nearing a bottom on my site.

FX in the recent period have been breaking from the "conventional" correlation with equities markets.

its important to be clear what you want from your money. do you want to invest, trade or speculate. many times people get confused over what they want. typical example of averaging down and resorting to buy n hold. suddenly a short term position becomes a long term view and small manageable losses morph into monstrous holes!

if things are that easy, there is no need/reason to pay premiums for the services/skills of bankers/fund managers. if statistics are good indicator, how many people in the world are capable of making their living solely thru investment, trading or speculation?

timing is a critical issue. it was easy to make money during bull runs. but it was also equally easy to lose it all when the downturn comes.

therefore, if one is clear in his/her target. losses can be limited. and that is the key between losing n winning.
