If your really worried about the market tanking just increase your bond allocation, don't let it sit in a money market fund.

I was yolo'n at 100% equities since I graduated but have been moving to 20% bonds over the past year.

It is a go.  I will let everyone laugh at me or praise me. 

Transferred everything from VFIFX (90% stocks/10% bonds) to VTINX (30% stocks/70% bonds).

Wait and see time.

You are too cowardly to see things as they are and act.

in this decisive moment of truth, i have the courage of my convictions, to see clearly, to speak honestly and to act decisively, doing the right thing for this country while there is still time to do the right thing for this country.

by which, i mean i'm gonna put some money in canadian energy.  seems cheap.
