“Is short term investing an oxymoron?”
It depends . . . what do you mean by short term and what do you mean by investing?
If by investing, you mean, the stock market.
If by short term, you mean, less than three years.
Then yes, short term investing is an oxymoron.
Stated a slightly less convoluted way – if you expect you will be needing your capital back in less than three years you should not invest that capital in the stock market.
