Is it a good time to invest in Robo-Advisors now because the US markets are now tanking and we should buy low?

I read from the community that many people are seizing this opportunity to invest in the US market. And thinking whether the obvious way would be to do this via the Robo-Advisors? I'm choosing between Stashaway and Autowealth now.

If you are dollar cost averaging, you should not be bothered about the when you should enter the market.

Thank you for your interest in StashAway! My name is Amanda and I am the Head of Client Engagement here at StashAway.

Just to share, when you create an account with us, we will build for you a customized portfolio of USD-denominated ETFs, based on your goals, risk level and financial information. By investing in ETFs from different asset classes, our portfolios provide diversification. Metaphorically, as you do not "put all your eggs in the same basket", investing in diversified ETFs helps you to manage risks in the face of uncertainty. As we use fractional shares (https://www.stashaway.sg/r/fractional-shares-at...), you are able to achieve this diversified portfolio even with a relatively low capital outlay.

Our portfolios are designed for medium to long term investment, managing risks and enhancing returns with our in-house investment framework. Our algorithms monitor your portfolios daily, and rebalance them regularly to precisely manage your portfolio's risk level. Our investment framework constantly monitors prices and economic indicators, and updates your portfolio allocation, helping you to navigate through changing economic cycles. You can read more about our investment strategy here: https://www.stashaway.sg/r/stashaways-asset-all....

By leveraging technology, we can be both time and cost efficient. We pass these cost savings on to you in the form of lower fees.

If you wish to invest in US market, just buy US index ETF. That's the easiest way.

If you were to invest via a robo advisor, you are accepting the portfolio recommended by the robo advisor based on your risk profile and the recommended portfolio is usually a globally diversified portfolio and not solely US-centric. Therefore you are only partially investing in US when you invest through a robo advisor.

It is better to buy US etf instead of using Robo Advisors. Even though US markets are tanking, the US markets are actually not cheap. Thus, if you were to buy, it is better to diversify into different markets and different assets. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.
