Willie Delwiche, investment strategist at All Star Charts, says that he does not believe investors will be rewarded for "being early to buy the dip," warning that changing market conditions make it that waiting in cash to see more discernible trends will avoid losses and sidestep volatility while still allowing for upside potential once it becomes clear that the tide is turning. "The more cash you have on the sidelines" Delwiche says, "the better you're feeling about your position." Today's show also features the return of Wade Pfau, professor of retirement income at The American College of Financial Services, who is back to answer listener questions about the use of reverse mortgages, especially given current interest rate and market conditions, plus Maria Szatkowski of discusses the site's recent survey on medical procrastination caused by inflation plus the acceptance of telehealth and whether it helps to break the logjam, and we revisit a recent wide-ranging conversation with Christine Benz, director of personal finance and retirement planning at Morningstar Inc., in which she coins the term "index-fund abuse" and discusses the difference between making a portfolio and investment strategy recession-proof versus inflation-proof.
