Carnival of Passive Investing # 31 - June 2013 Edition
Thanks to everyone for participating. Congrats to this month's top picks (shown below)!
1. Anton Ivanov presents Why Stock Market Timing Is a Waste of Time posted at Dreams Cash True. The sad truth is that market timing is largely futile. The vast majority of active traders fail to outperform long-term investing strategies that do not rely on timing the market. Many investors end up with large losses, loose their motivation and proclaim that stock market investing is dead.
2. PK presents Want to Be a Better Investor? Ask Your Wife! posted at Don’t Quit Your Day Job….Here are some hard facts that might blow a hole in your passive plan – even though men generally control the investing strings, women are better investors. Consider this evidence when coming up with your strategy!
3. Jacob @ My Personal Finance Journey presents Should You Include Emergency Fund and Specifically-Earmarked Savings in Your Overall Asset Allocation? posted at My Personal Finance Journey. Should savings that are earmarked for specific short/intermediate-term needs (vacations, buying a car, home down payment, college savings, doggie emergency fund, buying a new $3,000 bike, saving for a pool, saving for a rental real estate investment) and one’s emergency fund be included in your long-term asset allocation percentages? Or, should it be considered as a completely separate basket(s)? This post answers these questions.
