Realistic minimum duration to have £50-60k in an index tracked fund and see worthwhile returns. At least £2k

4-6 months apparently assuming monthly compound, 0 fees and 0 per month input.

It's a monumentally stupid question.

First, what the fuck does "worthwhile" return mean? How is anyone supposed to know what you mean by when you use a completely subjective benchmark?

Second, you don't judge investments by the "minimum duration" to see returns. If you need your gamble to pay off by a certain date, buy a lottery ticket.

Third, index funds are inherently long term investments by design. Asking about "minimum duration" for an index fund shows that you don't understand the investment at all, and shouldn't be investing in the first place.

I'm sorry your mummy never loved you.

5-10+ years.

That's where it shines, longterm gains.

If you happen to make a few thousand in a few months, there is no point taking it out because if you try to buy back in you'll be buying at a significantly higher price than originally. So you'll have effectively negated your gains.

JUST DOLLARCOST AVERAGE, Jesus how many times does it need to be said?

No one even mentioned USD or anything market specific. What the fuck are you talking about?

Holy shit. I don't even think this guy is trolling; I honestly think he's that stupid.

I'm honestly amazed and shocked that someone so retarded can still operate a computer.

you're likely to be better off picking an equally weighted basket of stocks at random from the wider market

Except if you buy back at a lower price.

Tell me more about the USD mantra.

>Except if you buy back at a lower price.

Yes but since you're going to be selling at the high, unless you want to wait around for many months until it's low again then you'll be buying at a high.
