So, the markets took a pretty serious dive last week - and then rebounded pretty solidly this week so far. Anyone panic and sell low (and want to admit it)? Anyone make a bucket shorting? Anyone take a buying opportunity?
I wish I had bought (of course), and thought about it but didn't have free cash. Lots of bargains were around; many still are.
Hard to tell if it's worth it. Do you keep cash around sitting idle waiting for a slump? Then you would have to subtract the opportunity costs of that from any gains you made by hitting a dip in the market. Sometimes there just isn't a slump and you've lost a lot by waiting.
