The value of an investment fund unit is based on the market prices of the individual securities in the fund. In theory, the highest return is obtained by purchasing stocks at the lowest price. But, of course, what the lowest price is cannot be known until a later point in time.
Instead of trying to time the market, we suggest that you invest the same amount on a regular basis. When prices are low, you receive more fund units for this amount; when prices are high, you acquire fewer units. Thanks to this average cost effect, you increase your chances of a lower average cost price, which renders unnecessary the question of market timing.
