Ben,

Your linked post refers a strategy of switching from 50% stocks to 0% stocks when PE-10 (a P/E measure based on 10 years of earnings data rather than just trailing 12 months) is above 18.

Where did 18 come from? Is it the value that best fits the historical data? Or is there some other basis for picking it?
