Is It Safer to Pull Your Money Out of the Stock Market Now?

Is It Safer to Pull Your Money Out of the Stock Market Now?

This raises a great set of questions: Is it safer to pull your money out of the stock market now? For one thing, normal stock market volatility means that you can lose money any given day that you are invested, while $1 in cash is always worth exactly a buck. With the stock market's long-run historical returns clocking in somewhere around 10% annualized, stocks can look less risky than cash over the long run when you consider the need to protect that buying power.
