We at Getting Technical conclude that any attempt to time the market is a failed strategy and that investors who use fully invested longer term models do better than investors who over-trade or market time. A long time ago a wise investor told me that most technical analysts who ”time” the markets end up with the ass out of their pants.
I am continually upset with technical analysts who use seasonal recommendations to buy and sell and also the technical analyst who tells the TV viewers to act on top like patterns such as the head & shoulders, key reversals and now recently an island reversal formation. It is frustrating for an investor to buy low, sell high and then have to buy back in even higher.
Investors who use fully invested dominant theme models do better than investors who over-trade or market time and our focus will remain on the Global, TSX models and Dominant Theme investing.
