    Hi Andrew,

    I have been following your blogs and read your books as well. I knew whats your advice would be even before i read this article and am fully agree to your point of investing every month in the low cost ETF for a long period to grow the investments steadily.

    However i have one dilemma to invest now. For example suppose I have 100K as a bulk savings which i want to invest and assuming i can invest 2K every month afterwards. Should i go all in now during uncertain times and then invest every month? Since the current bull market is nearing close to 10+ years and economy looks like at the peak & growth looks to be slowing down across the countries is it the right time to invest a bulk amount now or wait for some time for a reasonable correction before go all in?

    What is better for retired person? To sell shares to fund retirement and leave dividends reinvested, or stop dividend reinvestment and live on dividends. Assuming there is no tax obligation in either case , since early retirees have young children and get tax break .
    Does it make difference?
    thank you
