Should I buy into an index fund while the market is at record highs, wait until it dips again, or does it even matter?

First of all it depends how old you are and the type of asset risk you are willing to take.  Let's assume you have 10 years or more until retirtement and have moderate risk (60% equity and 40% bonds).  Trying to time your way into a market has the highest probability for loss.  I had many clients over the last 5 years tell me the same thing and never imagined the market would keep going up.  They have sat on cash for 5 years and have lost large amounts of asset appreciation.

Just set an allocation and keep buying.  You will go through many cycles over the next 10,20 or 30 years.  THe only sure thing is markets will go up and markets will go down.  Be proactive and buy now.  Remember keep your money working and keep adding when the market does correct.
