Re: Markets down - Invest now or wait further?

I disagree though on the 'needing years of experience' for the same arguments above. If you truly want a strategy that doesn't rely too much on predictions, follow the Bogleheads investment philosophy and be a passive investor. You won't be making money both on the way down and on the way though. That requires market timing. But market timing underperforms in the long run.

Being a passive investor you risk to get decimated by the active investors and the funds. The most successful investors I meet are long term investors (they started years back) and they either follow the markets or they have an advisor to do that on their behalf. They also got a big boost after 2008 with the QE.
