Is it time to step back into the stock market?

The increase in ISA allowances has placed more focus on the UK investment arena, and in particular the UK stock market, over the last few days. Is it now time to return to the UK stock market or are we being a little premature in assuming the economy has bottomed out?

There is no doubt there are significant funds on deposit for investment into the UK investment arena at some point in time. Whether now is the time to start picking up stocks, and other assets, is open to debate, but one thing is certain, no one investor will ever catch the bottom of the market with a drip feed system favoured by many. It is impossible to say whether markets will shoot ahead in the short term or possibly consolidate at lower levels if more negative news is released.

While every financial adviser you speak to will always remind you that investments should be considered on a long-term basis, it appears that many of us are looking for a short-term return. Those looking for a short-term increase in their investments are the ones likely to take higher risks and potentially see a fall in their assets. However, those who are prepared to look longer term, whether this be five years, 10 years or longer, are likely to benefit from the eventual recovery in UK economy which could take some time to arrive.
