The 2020 Vanguard Index Chart: Australian Edition

One of the main factors for success with investing in equity markets is the ability to stay in the market regardless of market conditions. Trying to get out and get in is a fool’s game. Markets can move violently in both directions in a short span of time and its impossible to know when that might happen.

Stay the course. No matter what happens, stick to your program. I’ve said “stay the course” a thousand times, and meant it every time. It is the most important single piece of investment wisdom I can give to you. – John C Bogle, Founder of Vanguard
