I believe it is ALWAYS a good idea to have a little cash on the sidelines (maybe 10%-20%). This allows you to puth this cash to work as we see market corrections (say a 10% dip). Then when the market rallies, take a little off the table back to 10%-20% cash. You will alway be 80% invested and if you consistently put more cash to work when everyone else is selling and take some off the table when others are buying, your chances of improving your returns are great.

I woulkd have to say for those who have time before they need to cash out investments, recessions can be a great thing. Why? They provide plenty of opportunities to buy on the low side.

It's all depends how" deep is your pockets ".How about you have stocks like AIG ML Lehman etc for banking sector . are you still keep on pouring your money in .

Dollar average trading style seems no good of general public lah
Good luck

should we invest in real estate such residential property, commercial property or land?

I think investing in land is a good thing to hedge against current market conditions.

I have been following a large piece of commercial property with potentially lucrative water resources but it is a little out of my reach.

Are you crazy? Land and real estate are terrible investments right now in much of the country. Think how to preserve your savings against inflation and look for real estate that generates positive cash flow.

Funny, that the same people who were telling us to buy real estate two years ago now advise us that it's a terrible investment right now... Wrong - it was terrible, but now it's time to buy!

James, you can invest in real estate. It's got to be in the right area.

True. These tips are very useful. Let me just add. Don't spend more than what you earn.
