This is the time for investors to become active: price growth appears to have stopped, market activity has declined and interest rates are stable. This constitutes a buyers’ market. Most people, however, will do the opposite: they will retreat into their shells and refuse to come out until the market is raging again – which is the wrong time to be buying. Remember this: no one ever became wealthy by following the pack. The pack always runs in the wrong direction.
