Biography:

Asad Gourani earned a BBA in Finance from Eastern Michigan University. Prior to establishing AG Wealth Management, Asad worked as a Personal Banker where he had the pleasure to work with people from different ages and background to assist them with their banking needs. During his time at Eastern Michigan University, he gained experience in financial planning by interning for an established local financial planning firm, as well as earning the Accredited Asset Management Specialist® and Accredited Portfolio Management Advisor® designations from the College for Financial Planning.

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

This is an interesting question that has been getting asked more and more frequently as the markets keep rising. Since I don't know your personal situation and I can't give any sort of investment advice without knowing all variables, let me give you an argument for both sides instead, hopefully this could help you make up your mind.

Since we can't time the market or make a good prediction to the near future, let me say that statistically speaking markets go up 2/3 of the time, and go down 1/3 of the time, which essentially means dollar cost averaging works in your favor 1/3 of the time where you find yourself adding more shares for a certain dollar value (assuming a disciplined approach is taken when the market isn't doing good.), but in 2/3 of the time you're actually dollar cost averaging on the way up therefore buying fewer shares for the same dollar amount.
Now, the risk of buying all at once is especially significant in the event you are near or in retirement, this way you simply won't have the time necessary to accumulate more to buy at these lower prices.

Tip: Whether you decide to buy now or wait, staying diversified is the most important thing that you could do even if you are passively invested. Look into different asset classes and different regions that have a lower correlation to the SP500. This way, in the event of turndown you'll be able to rebalance and take out gains from the better performing asset classes, and re-allocating capital to the worse performing asset classes.
