Are we nearing the top of the market?

1 Reply

Most smart investors believe that you should never try to time the market. And, if your good at what you do, you should be able to create deals in any point of the market cycle. But even those people would admit that it doesn’t hurt to jump in at the optimal time. My question is, are we nearing that optimal time or have was past it and are closer to the top of the market? Money is cheap and the economy is good but wages aren’t rising. There are so many moving parts.

Curious to know what everyone’s thoughts are on where we may be in the cycle and what’s on the horizon.

Agree on early statements.  Get a good model where you don't depend on market timing.

That said, I think we're 75% at least of our way through the market cycle.  Who knows how long it takes to get that last quarter of the way through and really shake things out (or if it's a prolonged plateau)
