Interesting how we can read something and interpret is differently than others.

I thought Jim was saying that if these factors exist than it is not worth betting on a rising market. My comment was intended to say since these factors do not exist now, that it is worth betting on a rising market.

Yes. Non-verbal expressions don't come through the written word very well. You can grimace and wink but nobody sees it.


There was no wink, nothing non-verbal, in Jim's comment. He wrote, with a very straight face as far as I can tell, that if all the traditional timing indicators are negative you probably don't want to be in the market. If you misunderstood that, you weren't paying close attention while reading.
