So I advocate timing and trading. Not difficult, and it does not have to require much work at all. Check out my previous posts, and ignore the random walk, efficient market stuff. That is mathematically unsound.

If it wasn't difficult, we'd all be rich. In any trade, there is a loser and a winner. So, I guess we can't all be rich, only significantly less than half of us.

The odds are that if you time the market, without being an astute investor to begin with, you will lose over the long run; more likely over the short run.
