Don't you think the "indicators" are tougher to trust in the current market/political environment where you have a lot more threats on tariffs which scare the markets one day, and then when people think it may get resolved, the markets run up again?

While no signal is close to 100%, I think the reliability is worse right now.

One of the worst things you can do, now or ever, is try to predict the market's direction from current news events. (Except if Lehman Brothers goes bankrupt. :-)
