    I'm not sitting on the sidelines waiting to lump in. Put some in last week, and more this morning. I'll continue to drip it in, instead of trying to call the bottom.

    My Aviva private Pension is pretty much invested in the FTSE. I'm not even gonna look - probably lost 15 per cent of my fund since last week - I'm 45 and when it rebounds it will be quicker than any recession recovery?

    My dad is 69 and the same fund, suppose he could covert it to their cash fund, but he'll be crystalising a loss, so might be best to sit tight?

    Saudis/Russia caused this latest fall pissing around with oil arguments. Terrible timing

    Your fund manager should do that for you ... the closer to retirement you get the safer (less risky ) your investments should be.

    Those that are “lumping in” are you going funds or confident enough to target specific shares?

    Like everyone else my nest egg is suffering at the minute but no point bailing out as they will recover in the long term. Would be good to take advantage though

    Not necessarily. Depends on what type of pension you have.

    The US markets have tanked this AM. Trading suspended. They are planning to open again shortly - not sure why?

    The US markets don’t open until 2.30 pm UK time so not sure where you have got that from
