S&P 500 At Record Height

What have I been up to these past days? Well, I worked on a lot of chores around the house, updated stuff for my side business and watched the first season of Game of Thrones. We have already seen the entire season, but we wanted to watch seasons one and two again before season three starts…which is this weekend! Yeah!

Anyways, today we’ll continue our investigation on index investing in The Netherlands. We are in no rush to make any decisions since the S&P 500 closed at record height yesterday. Congratulations to those who bought these stocks in 2008 when they were on sale! Then, we didn’t know anything about investing. Next time there is such a bear market (no doubt about it, I just don’t know when) we will know what to do: buy a shitload of stocks!

Will you do the same?

    Another common piece of advice is not to try to time the market. I’m just going to put money in whenever I can… which isn’t going to be during the next few months because I still need to build up that savings account.

      You’re totally right. At this point in time I still want to get rid of the interest-only part of the mortgage, so that’s where our money is going right now. Hopefully, we’ve got the thing paid off by the end of this year. Then, there are hardly any options to throw extra money at our bankspaarhypotheek unfortunately. So all the extra money will then go towards investing.
