AM a recent college grad, have a 401K at work and have started a Roth Ira to try and invest while my tax bracket is low. But I wanted to take about $10k and hopefully inject it with the help of the fool.com and maybe hit some of those huge gains in the stock market. My issue is all this talk about the possibility of crashes etc. Just wondering if maybe I should wait some months to see if the stock market retraces rather than put it all in now and possibly lose when it happens. What is the consensus lately, will there be some sort of crash or major retracement on the horizon.
Obviously I feel that I am starting at a great time with years of potential growth but I also can wait to see if some unfortunate event might take place.
Thanks for any help or concerns
