Note that for regular investments like 401k contributions people do dollar cost averaging. By investing the same amount every time at regular intervals, you will acquire more shares when the market is down and fewer when the market it up. This gives you a low average cost. That should work for a Roth IRA too.

That's another way of saying just keep buying and you will probably be ok.

I don't put much faith in the "market wisdom" regarding over valued market and corrections. Big crashes are rare. Rumors are often started by talking heads who have nothing else to talk about or worse by big investors who are trying to talk down the market so they can buy in.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Market wisdom has about the same value.

I think the people in charge, ie the Fed, wants the recovery to continue. That means the trend lines should be headed upward. Bumps along the road will be temporary.
