That's why it's hard to spend $1,000 when the market is a little high.

The problem with this kind of thinking is that the market could go much higher before the next "sale" known as a correction...with the low value of that correction potentially being higher than the current value of the market. That may not seem likely, but it probably did not seem likely in 1996 when Greenspan made his irrational exuberance speech either.

Invest consistently in a well diversified portfolio.
