I’m putting money to work in the ASX share market today

I’m putting money to work after all of the ASX share market difficulties in recent months.

It’s not easy investing at a time like this. It might feel like trying to catch a falling knife. In other words, investments in June could drop in value in July or later this year as interest rates keep rising locally and overseas.

But, we aren’t investing for what happens in the next month, or even over the rest of 2022. Investing is a long-term endeavour – we can’t predict share prices over the short-term. Predicting share prices is hard in the long-term too, that’s why index-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) can be effective investments. However, I believe thinking about the long-term gives us a better chance to do well.

I am investing in ASX shares today

I have a regular investment plan, though some months I do invest more than others. I’m putting in as much as I can from my monthly finances into investing in ASX shares at the moment.

It’s not often that we get the chance to invest in investments at much cheaper prices. If we think about the potential returns from the ASX share market, then I think the current levels represent much better value, which should help increase long returns.

I am going to invest today, even if it’s the ‘worst’ day this year for the share market because I believe that when looking back at this time in five years or ten years, it could likely show that today was a good time to invest.

There is no way of knowing when inflation will start returning to normal. It could be September, December or even next year. But I think there could be some great investment opportunities to jump on in the meantime.

While I’m not investing today in any of the names I’m about to mention, I would be very happy to buy any of them for my portfolio during today’s trading (and expected fall) – Xero Limited (ASX: XRO), Airtasker Ltd (ASX: ART), Volpara Health Technologies Ltd (ASX: VHT), Brickworks Limited (ASX: BKW), Temple & Webster Group Ltd (ASX: TPW), Adore Beauty Group Ltd (ASX: ABY), MFF Capital Investments Ltd (ASX: MFF), WCM Global Growth Ltd (ASX: WQG), Betashares Global Quality Leaders ETF (ASX: QLTY) and BetaShares Global Sustainability Leaders ETF (ASX: ETHI).
