I gave up on timing a few years ago and just started buying good stocks and indexes. Empirically, I'm a much better passive investor. I do try to keep some cash aside, so I suppose I am timing the market a little, but I've mostly tried to build a collection of stocks that will hopefully be more durable than average during the next downturn.
