How can I think about investing when markets are rocky?

Last updated on

It might feel comforting to have money in the bank, but over the long term it can really end up costing you. If your money is sitting in the bank and not doing much it can actually lose value over time – especially when inflation is high and the cost of things is increasing. 

If you ask the experts, many will tell you to jump in and buy when the markets are down (so that you can catch the upside swing). However, this can also feel a little scary when there is still strong volatility and your balance is likely to go up and down in the short term.
