Re: have you parked your saving in cash to ride..

hmm let s rephrase /. say you put 50k in in a mutual fund in 2016. have rode the gains up till now. you convert to cash in a gic for a 6month or 1 year while market finds its new norm. you protect against loses in the bear type market and still have the liquidity when the turnaround happens.
