Shares are easier to buy than Toilet Paper

Caroline Mark
The world has certainly gone crazy when the local GP posts in your netball whatsapp group, 'Does any one have any toilet paper? 'It's a bit of an emergency, we are nearly out at the practice, and I can't buy any anywhere!! ' It doesn't give you a great deal of confidence about the health system's ability to handle a crisis when the front line can't get the basics of toilet paper supply at the local surgery.

Like toilet paper supplies, the share market has also been all over the shot, with record moves within each day. I've been watching the market like a hawk, and taking Under the Radar's advice of buying in small parcels. I'm totally addicted. Is share investing gambling? I've never gambled and so I don't know, but I do look at our share research, look at our new bargain prices and I've been buying quality ASX Shares.

Market timing and when do you buy shares?

Market timing seems abolutely impossible to nail in this volatile market. I'm trying not to be greedy and just to be pleased that I've made a decision and I'm investing with a 3-5 year time line in mind.

The need for a Quarantini

I'm trying to be patient, and wait for the drops, you think you have got the low, and buy a small parcel of bank shares for example, and then whoosh, it's up a few dollars and you celebrate, and then whoosh it's down another 50c from where you bought it. What I need is the quarantini - Today's special drink - just a regular martini but you drink it alone in your own home...
