Hi All -

I've been investing for some time, but I'm faced with a dilemma that I have not encountered before and thought that I could use the insightfulness on the community.

3 Years ago, I cashed out my corporate 401(k) to fund an engineering firm. It has been successful and it allowed me to save the money that I had taken out of the market. When the Corona dip happened, I was able to capitalize and get about $20k of that post tax cash back into thte market via Roth IRAs for my wife and I. They are are up %89 in one and %51 in the other.

Given the outlook on the economy both because of Covid-19 and the political situation, I am very much considering taking all of the profits and letting the $$ sit in bonds or money markets until the next crash comes.

The Pros and Cons seem to be level pegging, so what say you community?
