I spoke to an investment advisor not long ago and he said "you have to stay invested no matter what"... Of course there are variables such as age, income, etc. but I think he's right - sitting on my cash won't make it grow. Sometimes we just have to take the risk I guess. I'll be sure to keep an emergency fund, but I think I need to get back in the game. I pulled out of my mutual funds at the wrong time and now I've missed the recovery because I've been too conservative. Sure the market "might" go back down, but then again it "might not". Too bad we don't have a crystal ball!

Thank you for the advice on the subject.
