I was talking about market conditions in March of 2008. As you point out, I was right. The market subsequently crashed fifty percent.

My thoughts on market timing are well encapsulated here over at Bogleheads.org: https://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Taylor_Larimore%27s_market_t...

In spite of your thoughts in 2008, buy and holding the technology powerhouses has trumped market timing in the time period we are talking about from March 2008 to current.
