Should I buy stocks during the ‘ghost month’?

By

Q: I have extra cash that I plan to invest in the stock market but I was advised by my friends that it is not a good time to invest this August because it is the “Hungry Ghost” month. I am not superstitious but I am not sure how this is going to affect the market. Should I avoid investing for now and wait for this unlucky month to pass first? Please advise—Allen Tolentino by email

I have been looking to invest my extra cash from SDA since last year. My bank offered me to put it in a long-term retail bond, but the net returns are so low that I am thinking of buying stocks instead. But then, I am afraid that I may just lose my money because the market is not so good. I am confused. Can you help me? – Roque Paragua by e-mail
