Keeping cash enough to cover my cost of living keeps me feeling better about market downturns. I know I don't need to sell to pay bills. Secondly, I have cash available in case of a market downturn so if I see a buying opportunity I can participate.

I may be wrong, but I feel safer with cash than CDs and bonds. I usually have about 10% cash for income/emergencies and 10% to purchase in bear market.
