 blue bar chart shows the growth of $2,000 invested annually in the S&P 500 from 2001 - 2020

“Time it right,” and “Don’t buy the peak” are attractive goals; however, the chart from @PeterMallouk shows the difference between perfect timing and bad timing over the last 20 years is only $151K vs. $121K.That is only a 20% difference.
