Does it even make sense to put money in a savings account vs it in a highly liquid investment. I always hear to limit exposure but at the same time, "Investments always go up long run"?

I am perplexed. I always here people saying to not put more than 50% of cash into investments or some conservative figure. At the same time, I lowkey get messages that investments will only go up.

I am asking this because at the moment, I have like 40% of my cash in savings account and I find it a waste while I watch my investment grow. Same time, articles are always saying investments will always go up long run, passive investing, etc etc

Should I just take this as "diversification",

I think "most" market indexes will go up (although some are really really slow) in the long run, if not because of productivity, then because of inflation.

Good investments bought cheaply are vert likely to go...
