No one knows that answer for sure. In a situation such as this, this is where you define yourself from the herd.
I would suggest the following strategy:
1) look at the big picture. open your eyes to what is anticipated to grow in the years to come (energy sector has a few years left, same with aerospace (Boeing!!!), health-care is trickier but will be growing by leaps and bounds in years to come.) Research the area you fell the most comfortable with.
2) Invest incrementally! You don't know what will happen to the market tomorrow, so don't put all your eggs in the basket at once! If you find some stocks that you have researched to be poised to do well in the months or years to come (depending on your investment horizon), than gradually get involved. I would suggest investing in 25% increments to your desired position, over the course of several weeks. Pay special attention to days when certain reports are due out. A good place to go for that is www.bloomberg.com. Look under "Market Data" and select economic calender. This will show you what reports are due out and you can then decypher for yourself which one will have what kind of impact on the market that day...and then develop your strategy that day around your investment goals.
Hope this helped!

The problem in America is greed. A good start would be as follows:
1. We need strict regulations for the banking industry and Wall Street.
2.. All mortgages should be 6% fixed year mortgages. Banks cannot be allowed to screw over the working man by charging high interest on home loans to cover up for the bad management now running the industry.
3. Credit cards should also have a cap of 10% interest period. No more variable rates and no changing the terms of the agreement.
4. For Wall Street strict regulations need to be put in place to control hedge funds and speculators.
In my humble opinion, this would be a good first step to bring stability to the financial markets and do something for the majority of Americans.
The Dow and S&P broke Major Support today; looks to be going a lot lower, not just a little. This is not a prediction, merely a strong probability.
The Nasdaq broke down two days ago, and the Russell is at a 16 month low. Everything seems to confirm the same thing.
Look out below.

Don’t we all want to know the answer to your question but as Baron Rothschild once said, "BUY when there's blood in the streets." The 'streets' have a 'nosebleed' now. In lieu of investing one lump sum on one day, you may want to consider dollar cost averaging.
