This whole post is great advice on how to make some cash under these market conditions. Thanks...doc

Sure, it's easy!
Just spot a big market drop not long before it happens.
Unfortunately, most types of insurance are expensive right now.
It's hard to buy fire insurance once the town is on fire.

I believe my hedges, despite my magical skills, have probably reduced my long run returns.
There have been some very emotionally satisfying moments, but you can't spend emotions.
On the other hand, the ultimate purpose of the money is to buy happiness, so I could get desperate and chalk it up to that...
