Today, the performance of the market was good, but that doesn't mean it is a good time to invest. Always remember that it is more important to miss the worst days than it is to get the good days.
Since the stock market is currently in a downtrend, there is a high probability of more bad days to come, which will most likely lead to an overall loss, even if you do catch the best days in this downtrend.
Always better to be safer than sorry staying in the sidelines during a stock market downtrend is a smart decision if your stocks aren't fighting the trend. Stock market downtrends are the perfect times to look for new winning stocks to buy.
