$10,000 is a great place to start with individual stocks. You can split it into 2 or 3 companies and watch as they grow or shrink and maybe get some dividends too.
Don't listen to everyone telling you it's not enough or that the markets are about to sell off. Start now with with the expectation that even if you lose a little short-term it will make you more experienced.

The trend I'm seeing is a lot of money is moving into the Canadian markets right now due to RSP, tfsa contributions. S&P500 might be going down due to the Federal Reserve selling its assets.

I lol’d at your comment. A lot of smart traders are holding cash, bond or gold right now. S & P 500 will go down even further after the recent short term rally with no catalyst to boost the US economy . Eurozone is deteriorating and with Brexit uncertainty. With the poor Q4 stock performance, a lot of people will see their stock portfolio reduce by 15-20%... which impact their wealth effect... liquidity in the market is going to cause a huge problem in 2019 and it’s key to pay attention!!!

Come back in two months and then see who is giving bad advice. Mark your calendar!
Done. Will come back after 2 months

Are you saying there is no upside for particular stocks or just don't buy the index?

Who exactly are the smart traders in your opinion?

Buy dividend growth stocks (cdn energy stocks that have beaten up last few months)

No FAANG stocks, buy gold and pay attention to biotech stocks!!! Cheers

The stock indices on 2019.1.11 are
On 2019.1.11
DOW Jones; 23,995.95
S&P 500; 2,596.26
NASDAQ; 6971.48
TSX 500 ; 14939.18;

Today at closing they are:
DOW Jones; 25,650.88
S&P 500; 2,783.30
NASDAQ; 7,558.06
TSX 500 ; 16,106.24;

They are up around 7 or 8%. For those not investing during this time and holding cash at the sidelines, they missed out on a rally.

If we had gone back to Jan. 6, 2019 the day Jackson75 first talked about timing the market, the market was even lower that day, and the rally would be higher as of today.

Next time you like to advise people to time the market, and wanting to laugh at people, be ready to be laughed at instead.

Timing the market doesn't work.

Those who sold late last year or early this year, to hold cash, are the ones missing out on the rally since that time. Those who stayed invested, are the ones benefitting from the gains.

Honestly, he could have been right. unfortunately, this time he was wrong. but if he keeps saying that, he'll end up being right one day.

in any case, no one can predict the stock market.

Lol exposed. That's why you can't just listen to one poster, read a multitude of posters and make/form your own opinions.

No one knows where the market will be tomorrow, next month or even next year, but a majority know that time in the market is much better than timing the market.

Apologize for being a bit too cocky with the 2 month prediction. Yes some of you are right, I shouldn't time the market but I am going to stick with my game plan.

What I suggested to OP earlier is below... Yes some of you argue that indexes are up...What I said to enter the market gradually and play it safe. I did not say to hold cash and do nothing. Good for those short term traders that made some quick $$$ but remember it's a marathon not a sprint especially for those are new to investing. Understand the business cycle is important to be able to survive in this financial environment.

My bonds and energy stocks are doing fine since two months ago and i sleep very well. Chill-ax guys!

1) "Buy dividend growth stocks (cdn energy stocks that have beaten up last few months)"
2) "If I had to enter the market right now...I would divide the $10k to 3 or 4 times and invest $2.5~3k quarterly or depending on the market condition."
3) "A lot of smart traders are holding cash, bond or gold right now. S & P 500 will go down even further after the recent short term rally with no catalyst to boost the US economy " $IEF, $TLT

Your third point is again prediction but with no time frame so yes this you will be right one day

But I agree with you that One should invest regularly and small amounts
