Depends on how close you are to retirement and how averse you are to risk.

I don't expect the market to recover for some time...I'm talking 5, 10, maybe 15 or 20 years.

That's good for me at 29. The longer it stays down, the more I make on recovery. Unfortunately it's bad for my parents in their late 50's. Luckily they have a military retirement.
