For those who like to buy and hold, you could always consider investing into a index fund, as they have shown time and time again to weather market down turns.

You could try investing once a week, once a month or perhaps every quarter, by doing this it can lessen or remove the worry around attempting to time market entry. Also by averaging into multiple positions over time there is great potential to form a encouraging cost basis that provides great opportunity to generate profit in the long-term.
4. Assess your current portfolio
By evaluating holdings during a market correction, and if the reason you decided to invest in the first place, such as business fundamentals remain the same, you could contemplate buying more stock at a lower price. But if your grounds for investing are no longer being met, you might want to consider reducing your holdings. One thing to keep in mind though is that many successful investors continually stress the importance of never letting your emotions dictate your actions.
