Given the bearish sentiments on macro economy and financial markets would it be advisable to halt my monthly saving/investment in stash-away portfolio and reevaluate at a later date?

General trend seems bleak in the near term at least, are there more upside to hold cash and wait for better investment opportunities. NOT talking about cashing out existing portfolio, more so on saving bullets in case better opportunities come later half of the year.

    That is timing the market. You will never know when the market bottoms or when it'll start to recover. There could be a vaccine tomorrow or it'll crash by another 20% the next day. No one knows. That is why DCA is commonly preferred option.

      Hi Anon, you'll never know when the market will suddenly go up again or how long the bear market is going to last. What I do, is to find good companies after doing my due diligence, and enter the market at several tranches since the prices are roughly depressed already. I.e. I enter now at xx price, if after some months it dropped further by another 10%, I'll buy again at the cheaper price. So this is sort of like DCA, at least you secure the price first. Further more, DCA works better in a bear market, so I'd stay invested or get invested.

        As you are doing DCA, you are actually buying more stocks at cheaper prices.

        Unless you know when ...
