Long story short (spoiler alert!) he gets out and manages a sizeable financial windfall in the process. His best pal Red narrates that he blew town with the better part of $370,000 dollars!

If you buy your units when markets are high only to have them reduce in value, it will take longer for you to recoup your losses than if you had bought for a lower price further on down the track. If you delay, markets could rise further in the meantime. The difficulty is that the perfect time to buy is only ever clear in hindsight.
