Should I sell ES3 STI ETF and buy ARKF at the next dip? How long should you hold ARK ETFs?

Currently holding some ES3 that I bought over the past few months, sitting at 8% gain and about 14% of my portfolio of ETF (VT), Robos and Stocks. Originally intended to hold for 4% dividends and sell when it reaches 3.3sgd. Based on the ETF history, that is about Mar 2021, but I anticipate opportunities in Jan when Biden moves in. I've been intending to put a lump sum into ARKF for value. Do you think it's advisable to sell off and hold cash, or stick to my original plan?

Hi, there is no right or wrong. But I would enter ARKK now, high chance Cathie won't lose ARKK as it's a lose-lose situation for both. I'm confident they'll work things out.

3) Unless you strike TOTO frequently, you have very slim chance to predict precisely the next dip, so act now or never.



Hold your sti and continue to build your portfolio. I believe that if you bought near the dip, your ...
