You want to make the most of your income, and you know stuffing it inside your mattress or in a low-interest savings account isn’t going to do anything to help you build future wealth. But placing your hard-earned money in the market can intimidate even the most confident investor because you’re taking a chance. Not only that, choosing when to invest your money in the market is just as important as where you invest.

So, how do you pick the perfect time to enter and exit the market? The truth is, if you wait for perfection, you likely won’t invest at all. And that doesn’t build your wealth, either. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a right time to buy, hold or sell your investments.

How Current Events Shape Investments

One of the gauges to keep your eye on before investing is to look at current events. For example, in June 2021, the government promised to release previously classified documents about unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Knowing this information ahead of time might draw your attention to companies that deal with space like Boeing (NYSE: BA), Virgin Galactic Holdings (NYSE: SPCE), Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) and Iridium Communications (NASDAQ: IRDM). Of course, you also need to consider the strength and longevity of the companies you’re considering for investment.

And because timing, research, current events and speculation play huge roles in the success or failure of an investment, you have to use caution and know when to bring in the professionals for advice. Even then, you and the professionals are only human and will make mistakes from time to time. After all, if you look at the example of space exploration, the timing of rocket liftoff and landing must be so meticulous that they use a combination of computer and human analysis to make each launch a success. For investing, you have the human part covered, so why not enhance your decision-making process with the help of technology?
