March 15, 2017 – Invest regularly despite market volatility. By investing regularly over months and years, short-term downturns will have far less of an impact on your overall performance long term. Rather than buying and selling based on market conditions or RSP deadlines, make your investments weekly, monthly, or quarterly to avoid the perils of market timing. Investing through downturns won’t guarantee you gains or that you will never experience a loss. However, when prices fall your regular contributions buy you more, so that when the markets eventually recover, you have taken advantage of the sale price and end up further ahead.
