Market Timing is basically the ability to move in and out of the market as it fluctuates. Not only can you move in and out, but you can also utilize inverse funds which increase in value when the market decreases in value. Both of these strategies can reduce risk by keeping conservative investors on the sidelines during downturns while participating during upward moves. It also allows aggressive investors the ability to profit when the market falls. It is difficult to be successful at market timing continuously over the long run and frequent trading increase costs, thus impacting returns.
A mutual fund is a company that pools money from many investors and invests the money in stocks, bonds, short-term money-market instruments, or other securities. Mutual Funds are required by law to have a third party custodian, usually a bank, which holds the fund’s assets. This administrative requirement provides that the assets cannot be accessed by the fund adviser other than to invest. There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will achieve its objectives, generate profits or avoid losses.
