Time to put some cash back into the market?

With the feds looking to lower rates this week, I am sitting on some cash, waiting for a time to put it back into play. I would imagine the market will look favorable on the fed action and it might be a good time to move on this. Any thoughts? It's not exactly timing the market, just looking for a merge on to the freeway so to speak.

1. There is always something on sale. So, it's always a good time to buy something.

2. The market completely expects the rate cut this week. If they cut 0.25% I think the market will likely sell off a bit...sell the news. If they don't cut and keep rates the same, there will be a bigger selloff - possibly 5% worth. If they cut by 0.5% then the market will likely go up some, but not for any logical reasons.

If you're timing it, I would be buying after the announcement of a 0.25% cut and the short-term pullback that we would likely see following.

True.

Well, I bought stocks on sale quite a few times. They turned out to be "defective" or "rejects". Lost quite a bit of money.

The rate decrease is built in. Might something else move the markets? It is always something.

The best day is today. Next best day is tomorrow.

I'm within 0.5% portfolio gain of selling for next year's expenses. That means it's all down from here. I hope the rate cut helps, but it's been pretty well advertised.

I have been withdrawing money to finance a 350k upgrade to our snowbird condo, sell $315k and buy $665k including all furnishings and other contents. After 11 years, it was time for renewal. So I am expecting a decline in equities in the second half. Made 17% in the first half and not greedy.

NO MARKET TIMING. It is a fool's errand.
