Do you all believe in the December sell-down effect? Some investors believe it is good to buy shares in December, thoughts?

Is this effect a myth? or is it backed-up by data? can those experienced investors here please shed some light on this supposed effect?

    I don't try to time the market. Then I'll believe in "Sell in May and Go Away" as well.

    However, there is no denying that there is a certain level of sell off, particularly in December. Go google for "Window Dressing" for more information.

    For the masses when it comes to the stock market, stay invested, enter at a good price, and don't bother which month it is.

      Hi!

      There is no particular pattern that the market follows. It is volatile and goes up or down at any time of the year. So as an investor, I follow the practice of investing regularly and plan to remain invested till such time I do not have any use for those funds. Investments for the long term usually have better returns than short term investments because the market is very volatile in the short term. Thus, remain invested and ride through the volatility to get good returns from your investments.

      I work at Kristal.AI, and it's my passion to evaluate various upcoming investment opportunities.
