True. This is one of the reasons why I can't see selling out of my existing positions. When the recovery comes, it could be rather explosive for a while and it would be my luck that if I sold everything, that's when it would come.

If there is a list of things to buy or to do, do it now!!!!! When the market goes up, so do the prices.

I'm thinking of buying a new puter, with 8 cylinders, hemi-heads, dual exhaust, and a sound system to blow DW's ear drums out. Yeeee hawwwwwww.

Yes, assuming you aren't concerned with stockpiling cash in case of a job loss or other interruption of income security, I agree completely. But right now, I'll take the cash in the bank.
