I keep reading folks that talk about timing the "market" . . . YOU CAN'T DO IT!  In the short term the "market" is a random walk, so how do you hope to time it.  Do your due diligence, buy quality companies (not gambles), balance with some good dividend stocks, periodically review, and change holdings when you no longer believe what you hold is a buy.  Long term investing is boring, but profitable.
