The CS Monitor's New Economy blog had an interesting post over the weekend. I'm not sure past comparisons offer much value today, but when no one knows the future of the market, all they can do is look backwards.

I am in mostly cash right now, even in my retirement funds. I may miss a rally, but real property and cash seem safer than stocks right now. Also, I don't have to keep my cash in low-yielding American dollars. I recently bought the Mexican peso (NYSEARCA:FXM) and will be looking to buy the Australian dollar (NYSEARCA:FXA) as well.
