I'm sticking with what, mostly by trial and error, has turned out for me to be a fairly well hedged mix of stocks and bonds ... and cash.

That, really, is the best solution. Each investor must stick with what has worked for them rather than trying to switch horses in mid-stream on the basis of shaky forecasts made on conflicting evidence.

Jack Schwager makes that point constantly in his books of interviews with 'market wizards'. Traders with conflicting methods make good money for themselves in a variety of market conditions, but no one else can do it exactly their same way.
