What happens if a fund such as iShares S&P or the Vanguard S&P closes down? will it be liquidated completely and transferred back to our account? or do we lose the amount invested in that fund?

Nothing lost, no problem, with 'physically replicated' ETFs, Your property. with 'synthetically replicated' (ETFs) f.ex. Europe domiciled ones there could be default risk, however (SWAPs as an instrument to replicate) with ETN (= exchange traded notes or 'certificates') there truly is a counterparty default risk, so buy physically replicated ETFs only, never synthetically replicated or ETNs

Everyone has different priorities in different stage in life, and that's totally understandable. For me, as simple as it might sound, we always have a choice in what we want to do. It's all about "allocating" the priorities. To answer your question, I choose to read updates from my investing community rather than general market news (for eg). It's about choosing which "makes more sense" to you. It's never easy, and sacrifices have to be made sometimes, but at the end of the day, we all made the best choice we see fit at any point in time :)

Seeing that the S&P 500 is near record highs does it make sense to tune down the risk levels if you are using roboadvisers at this moment?
Unless you are expecting the price to come down, if not why would you want to tune down? In this case, like what Aaron has mentioned, what's the point of investing in growth ETF if you are envisioning a ceiling? It's like capping your business profit because you feel like you earn too much. Don't try to time cause you will be losing out on opportunity if the S&P 500 did nothing but to continue rise for the next year. We invest based on your risk tolerance, time horizon, and objectives. If none of those factors has changed, always stick to your risk profile. When such circumstances happen, you can apply strategy like DCA instead of changing your whole investment principles and fundamentals.

As all investments have risk, the government has restrictions to make sure you have enough money when you retire.
