When you look at the state of the Canadian economy, and then you start to look at the US economy and then the global economy, you can’t help but be concerned about your investments. We all want to time the market properly. You know – you want to buy now and sell high! We also love to see our investments growing but if when we see a loss – our heart stops. Who wants to lose money on their investments. If you hid that money under your mattress you would at least have the same amount. My boyfriend tells me that I am too emotional, and that all good investors do not let their emotions get in the way of their investments. He tells me to focus on the long term just like he does.
