The stock market is your friend. Just like anyone else, it has highs and lows. The highs will always come back, it may just take a while.
If you expect to need money in the short term, you don’t invest it in the stock market but you start building your emergency fund.
When you’re young and you don’t need the money you’re investing any time soon, you can take a little more risk.
The fact that a market correction will occur is certain. The thing is, no one knows when it will happen or how much the correction will be.
When you’re investing with a long-term horizon, it doesn’t matter what the stock prices are doing this month or this year.
