It may appear that those in favor of low cost index funds with minimal turnover for DIY investors only write about the folly of market timing. To prove that isn't the case and that we are more open minded, I offer a market timing move extraordinnaire by none other than Tony Hayward, BP's CEO. He might be clueless about deep sea drilling but apparently has a market sense.
Good move Tony!
Thoughts and observations for those investing on their own or contemplating doing it themselves.
If you are seeking investment help, look at the video here on my services. If you are seeking a different approach to managing your assets, you have landed at the right spot. I am a fee-only advisor registered in the State of Maryland, charge less than half the going rate for investment management, and seek to teach individuals how to manage their own assets using low-cost indexed exchange traded funds. Please call or email me if interested in further details. My website is at http://www.rwinvestmentstrategies.com. If you are new to investing, take a look at the "DIY Investor Newbie" posts here by typing "newbie" in the search box above to the left. These take you through the basics of what you need to know in getting started on doing your own investing.
