Investment in Times of Uncertainty

Tonight Dr. Burton Malkiel held a seminar in Grand Hyatt about investing in certain times. It was organized by Vanguard Investments Australia. Dr. Malkiel presented standard arguments in support of index funds but also some additional ones I was not aware of before. This time I really paid attention to cost averaging and portfolio rebalance and it does make a lot of sense in addition to relying on index funds. All in all it was an interesting session. His new book is out - From Wall Street to Great Wall. It must be interesting, since he mentioned China a couple of times during the talk.
I assume it is interesting watching energy (oil) and minerals stocks over the coming years, not just months or weeks.
