The three events I talked about sent the (relevant) indexes down 40% or thereabouts.

Yes, this is very much the goal: to recognize not just the greater chance of this happening, but the very probable expectation that it will happen, given the macro events unfolding.

The push-pull tide also comes into play not just with the idea that what if I'm wrong and cash out when the market actually continues up (or at least levels), but also with the major tax consequences in cashing out large figures in taxable accounts.
