Terrible time for new investory to get in?

Hey guys,

I’m new to the world of investing and am soaking up as much knowledge as quickly as possible. It’s quite clear that it will take months (and ultimately years) to get a better idea for what is a wise investment, however I’d love to pick a company or two to get a better feel for it. I’ll be looking more into ETFs and Index investments soon.

Problem is that I’m getting mixed messages. On one hand, I’m being told not to try to time the market, and that it’s too easy to sit on the sidelines while everyone else is benefiting. On the other hand, it seems almost unanimous that the current bull run is going to come tumbling down soon.

Many commentators are happy telling investors to not panic and keep their money in the market, which makes sense to me given what I have understood about value investing so far. However, people seem quiet on whether putting new money into the market is a reasonable move at this stage.

I’m not asking for a market predication, I’m asking whether you would be jumping in on the tail end of this market cycle if you were new to the investing world.

Absolutely love the show,
