Nothing is more CERTAIN to make you poorer than trying to time when to buy and sell stocks. It just isn’t possible. Period. No investor in the history of stock markets has consistently figured out when to get in it get out. Mathematically, one mistimed decision can have material adverse impact on long term returns. Don’t bother wasting your energy thinking about it.
Being able to time the market is an illusion. I would book some profits to convert the notional gains into actual greenbacks 😀One should never love one's stock holdings because you never know when they stop loving you back. So, prune your portfolio regularly to keep it heathly and harvest some gains when the sun 🌞 is shining bright. That should make you wealthy and wise. 👍
Diversity includes hard time investments beer bread and ball bearings. The hard rule is to only play with what you can afford to pay.
Read Mr. Nakai’s advice, above. Well stated.
When in doubt invest in yourself.
