Let us put timing in perspective. Timing is not bad and you should not, for example, buy the Nifty at 29X P/E Ratio. That is not a smart thing to do. Similarly, selling the Nifty at 10X P/E is also not a very smart thing to do. Timing, as a broad guide, is essential for you. The bad news is that timing the market is difficult! However, the good news is that you can still make money in trading without being obsessed with timing. In fact, for a trader managing risk and capital matters a lot more than timing!
