There are three bottoms in a bear market. We are looking for number three.

You might have a very long wait.

We're in a roaring bull market. That being said, believing that there are predictable patterns that markets always follow, for instance: "there are three bottoms in a bear market" and letting such dogma drive your investment decisions, is, in my opinion, a recipe for disaster, or at best, sub-par results and a lot of time out.
