Timing the market matters, but not as much as you think. Since you are investing in
capital markets, prices can go up or down at any given day. Timing the market is difficult and can easily go in the wrong direction.

With recent market volatility, you cannot say for sure if something is going to go up or down for that matter.
Where the market goes in the short term is far less important to you, as long as you stick to a regular investment plan. If a recession hits the economy and your investment falls in value, you'd just end up buying more shares at a lower price.
