Market traditionally has done twice as good when a democrat is president. Even so I have trouble sleeping even when it goes down for a day. I am happy being out of the market at this stage of life. Let the young ones support the market.

"Third, accept that if you want to grow your wealth it will involve some amount of stock exposure and that there is no risk-free way to load up on stocks."

Sounded like a borken record; but true.  Thus (1) do steady-Eddie mutual funds (no stocks), (2) do not do rush and quantity moves, (3) be very conservative no matter what, (4) have an exit strategy beforehand.
