CHARLOTTE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / January 8, 2021 / When is market timing relevant, and when is it not? That is the question asked recently at a post at American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administration firm based in North Carolina. At the post, American IRA asked whether investors might be thinking about market timing, or whether opening a retirement account has such a long timeline that it is better to begin immediately.
Although American IRA is a Self-Directed IRA custodian that does not provide specific investment advice, the article tackled general themes of retirement investing. And it pointed out that for many investors, compounding returns is the name of the game. Getting started early is the fastest way to begin compounding returns, which means that investors with a longer time-frame-years, not decades-do not have to worry so much about timing.
It is interesting to note, however, that investors also have to think about other aspects of retirement investing. For some investors, a certain age may mean the ability to use “catch-up contributions” for building a retirement nest egg. There are other issues of timing that retirement investors need to think about as well. For someone with a Roth IRA, for example, there are no required minimum distributions after retirement age. That means that investors holding a Roth IRA may have a different strategy based on a longer time frame. This is due to the Roth IRA’s ability to continue generating returns even after retirement age.
“Timing is something that all think we can predict,” said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “But ultimately, retirement investing is about not knowing the future. Building a safe and secure retirement future means being able to build something that can stand the test of time.” According to Hitt, the specific timing of an investment is less important than the ability to build a long-term future.
The article explored these issues in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and its unpredictable effects on the stock market. However, investors who think about retirement may have time frames that extend beyond the immediate future-and potentially go decades into the future.
