You set up automatic trading. When the market starts dropping it hits a "stop loss" that you have preset and it sells. Then you wait.
When it hit bottom (and you never know when that really is) I put $7k into Fidelity Low Priced Stock.
(this fund purchases under valued stock, they basically do the work for you with weeding and sewing). I made $3,400 so far this year.
