Missing the boat?

Went to Taiwan for a 2 weeks break. During the period there, the STI dropped quite significantly. I remember checking 1 day and saw that the STI ETF dropped close to $2.80. I was really quite tempted but held off from utilizing more of my war chest, thinking that the market might stay flat for 1 or 2 more weeks until i am back.

Surprisingly (or perhaps not), the market bounced up quite a lot in the last few days, and STI ETF is now over $3. The market is really a beauty pageant, and the votes are swinging widely at the moment, and i might have missed the boat this time round.

But, who knows it might crash again soon for people to pick up?

All i can console myself is, i added 10 lots (still not used to thinking of 100 shares as a lot!) when the price was at $2.91. Unfortunately, i also added when the price dipped from $3.50 to $3.30! So i think overall for this year, my ETFs are a little in the red. With the year coming to an end, let's see how it will fare.
