Should you invest in stocks now, when markets are at all-time highs and just about every valuation metric is showing the markets to be highly overvalued?
According to investment advisors and fund managers who are paid commissions and fees based on the amount of assets they have under management, you shouldn’t worry. The markets are going to keep going up over time and therefore you should continue to invest your funds even when asset prices are at high levels.
And it’s not only those who will benefit financially from your investment who will tell you that now is just as good a time as any to invest.
There are plenty of people out there who believe you should always be buying because there is no way to time the market and it’s better to be invested at all times than to get out at the wrong time and miss a whole lot of upside. This position is styled as a conservative one.
