In life, I would say that the longer you look into the future, generally, the more uncertain things are. However, with investing, I believe the opposite is true. In the short term, markets can move in any direction, and my clients would know that I never attempt to make a prediction on what the market is going to do over the next 12 months. The reality is, that if you have an investment timeframe of fewer than five years, and ideally eight years, you should not even be considering investing in shares.

Understandably, the current bull market in equities has some market pundits signalling a downturn is near and that company earnings do not justify equity valuations. Sure, there is a possibility these views could be true, but I guarantee you these same opinions were put forward three years ago too. If you acted on these beliefs and sold out of equities altogether, you missed out on a near 40% surge in Australian and US equity markets respectively, as measured by the ASX200 and S&P500.
