NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Watching a stock market meltdown can be scary for investors. On Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 1,089 points early in the session, before recovering to close with a drop of almost 600 points. But stock futures in the U.S. on Wednesday are rebounding.

On Tuesday, stocks had another wild ride, with the DJIA closing down 1.3%.

Whether you're in the market for the short term or the long haul, the question remains the same: What should I do now?

The experts, of course, are all over the map. Some see Monday's selloff as a buying opportunity, while others think the worst is yet to come.

According to TheStreet's latest poll, 51% of respondents said the selloff Monday was a sign of something worse to come. And 65% of respondents viewed the markets rout as a buying opportunity.
