What about those of us who have lost money lately and realize that trying to time the market is just going to lose us more money in the long haul? You know, those of us to stick with our plans and not shift in the wind?Any interest in talking to us?This is a hard issue to respond to, isn't it? It's easy to talk about your successes when the bull is running, but what to do when the bear walks in? I've sold about half of my non-US stocks recently. I didn't sell anywhere near the high, so I retain my title as the least competent trader on Fool. :o) But, my needs are different than yours; so keep that in mind. If you are truly a long-term investor, then remember that the bear usually waltzes across the stage and goes quickly back into hibernation, whereas the bull has his run of the place for the greatest percentage of the time. Granted, the bear does manage to do a lot of damage in his jaunt across the screen.Hedge
