Set Schedule! How it Can Help You Get the Most Out of Your Investments

May 20, 2019

1 min read

Want to get the most out of your investments? It’s as easy as clicking a button.

Why Set Schedule?

Making small deposits on a regular basis is one of the keys to smart investing. This strategy can help you to manage the highs and lows of the market to your best advantage.

Set up Set Schedule to make automatic, recurring deposits and investments. Choose a schedule that works for you (every week, every two weeks, or every month), and Set Schedule can deposit cash into your account or invest it directly into your favorite investments.

Set Schedule and the market: Why it’s your best friend

Will the market go up and down? YES. Right now the markets are facing some political noise. And often with noise comes volatility, or turbulence.

Long-term investors (that’s you) shouldn’t be concerned with timing the market. No one can predict exactly what the market will do tomorrow or next week.

Consider market fluctuations as opportunities to continue adding to your portfolio at lower prices. If the market keeps dropping, keep adding those little amounts. If the market goes up, keep adding those little amounts. As a reminder, investing involves risk. Please take your financial situation into consideration when making investment decisions.

Never mind the market, hold steady

Look back at the last few decades. There were gains and declines through the dotcom bust, 9/11, the Great Recession, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and three separate presidential administrations. But staying the course has proved to be the way to go.

Imagine if you’d bought small amounts of these investments all through these ups and downs. You could have harnessed the gains from when the market was up, and bought more when the market was down As a reminder past performance is not a guarantee of future results.

Follow the Stash Way!

Stash recommends following the Stash Way, which includes regular investing, diversification, and investing for the long term.

Investing for the long term can help insure that you aren’t locking in your losses due to short term fluctuations in the price of a stock.
