As far as timing the market that's really up to you. Joel seems to have had some success with it and I recall looking at his results and they were respectable for at least the last 5 years if I remember correctly.
Just to know what we are talking about.
What does it mean when you say results and they were respectable for at least the last 5 years if I remember correctly.
If someone could earn a secure 10% return for 5 years would that be respectable? What is the number was 15%?
What 5 year return should someone shoot for? I am not asking about only the equity market. Just trying to get a benchmark that people think is reasonable for a 5 year period if the return was to be fixed for the period.
