Dang. I probably shouldnta said that. Same wording and personal dismissiveness that CC uses, so I'll call it an honest mistake.

Anyway ... as for timing. Maybe it does work, maybe it doesn't. Backtests show it as generally slightly reducing returns and greatly reducing standard deviation and max drawdown, hence inproving the risk-adjusted return.

Kinda hard to argue with backtests.
