So Doc, for the novice or average investor, 50 and 200 day moving averages would generally be part of a more sophisticated technical analysis that would include these as a market timing criteria?

Seems like it might be best, for me as a novice, to evaluate other criteria, like EPS, ROIC, dividends etc. when formulating one's risk tolerance and overall investment strategy.

Thanks for the response and the links Doc.
