re: Investing ~90k today - UpstairsComputer
There is always a possibility of a market decline coming up. Always. What is your time frame? If it's a year, cash, money markets, and CD's. If it's 30 years, and you're worried, use a moderate risk approach and switch to aggressive when your prophecy comes true....
