But we've guessed, you'll get there, when we unanimously elected you our CacoLaco president!

If you are at the point where you have enough money (if there is such a thing..) I'd say, yes.
Move part to safe, diversified ETFs, and keep a large portion in cash for the inevitable big dip.
And perhaps a small portion in a few speculative stock, if you don't mind loosing that part.
I'm speaking from experience. As you know I've failed to do this many years ago.
And if a big dip doesn't come, or if you do nothing when it comes, it's OK, since "if have enough" ...
