How do we go from people predominantly talking about going to cash, holding cash, the end of the bull market, etc., and then in one or two days totally change to the opposite?

It is what I said, it does not pay to be that close to the market. Market is up and market is down. For MDB, as an example, a clear downward pressure point existed. Sold out. Now can buy in much lower. However, how many people sold ANET after its post earnings crash?

What is apparent is that we are all too tapped within the investing infrastructure that exists on the day to day, that because of the 24 hour news cycle requires new and interesting information about investing on a daily basis. And for those who are in the midst of this, every day feels like forever on an investing scale.

Oh well, today we suddenly feel bullish. Yield curve gaining in slope, etc. I think perspective is a better long run way to invest.
