12. True, if you need ALL of your retirement money in the next 2 years...

probably a good idea to just take it out and sit on the cash.

Most people though will still just take out a certain amount each month to live on and should leave the rest in to recover. This is still higher than it's been any other time over the past 100 years but spending too much time trying to time the market or predict what it will do is futile. For all we know the market has been held down by Trump and the start of impeachment hearings will show that the U.S. isn't as bad as we all thought and the market will skyrocket. Or it could tank. All that we know is that we don't know, but that in most cases it is a better plan to stay in the market at all times.
