Phew…so I was bitchin’ about the fact that VWRL was too pricey at €49.50. Well…it only went up (of course). I put in an order at €50 and bought a shitload. So did the hubby. That was his investment for April, which was long overdue. It was my investment for May.
It does become difficult when human emotions come into the equation. And waddayaknow? You can’t get around that factor! Market timing is something we shouldn’t be doing. We tried it. We didn’t like it. And from now on we’ll stick to the game plan. Promised. Each month we’ll invest a set amount of cash into VWRL. Period. For real.
It’s the hubby’s turn in June and mine again in July.
This is exactly why I love our automatic investment scheme with Meesman.
However, we insist on investing with Vanguard as well. And I haven’t found an automatic way to do this on a monthly basis (yet). This means we have to buy the stocks manually every month and that means we get to see the prices and stuff. Oh well…this “investment problem” of ours is not the end of the world now, is it?
Thanks for all your feedback and keeping us on the right track when it comes to euro cost averaging.
