What should I do if I am holding cash? Is it time to move back into the market, and if so, how should I proceed? Those are difficult questions considering the S&P 500 (VFINX) increased in value by 87.4% since January 20, 2009. If one were to follow the Louis Rukeyser analysis, moving immediately into the market is the correct decision. However, Rukeyser was using data that included one of the greatest bull market of the 20th century. In a raging bull market it is always time to jump in as soon as possible. Moving immediately into this market may not be the best advice as we close out August of 2012.
What would I do if I were holding a large percentage of a portfolio in cash or cash equivalents?
