I have some cash, about 80k that i'm sitting on. I think there will be a major crash within the next few months. I'm thinking it will be 20%...for long term investors this is no big deal, the market will re correct and grow.

But I have no investments at all, yet. I'd like to start off with the value of my 1st investment to follow a big crash. Any ideas of my simply waiting for a crash and then buying an index fund like Vanguard or should I buy a company or 2 that got hit hard by the 'crash'?

For those who ask how i know a crash is coming? Crashes always come, don't they?
