I started investing around August 2018.
That’s an awful short time to expect results IMO.
If you peruse through Fund Fact sheets you’ll see it’s not very uncommon for funds to have drawdowns of up to 25% in a year.
Yes. We are in a major valley at the moment, and as mentioned before, that in itself is no guarantee that there’ll be a turnaround.
However, I often chuckle when I read people saying “everything is too expensive.” Or “I should have bought when it was xx” to then read the opposite of when things ARE cheap, the same people say what a joke share investing is (I’m speaking in general)
That, in essence, is what this is all about isn’t it. When people ask, “how can I make money on the stock exchange” 9 times out of 10 the answer usually is “buy low and sell high”
