> 1.Why market timing doesn't work for most.

This is undenyable. I've learned this the hard way :)

> 2.Why Wall Street uses this behavior against investors.

This does sound good. But it seems to me it must be a very small minority on Wall Street that uses this approach. Why do so many funds (>90%) underperform the market? To me, the comments from the "experts" in this article have a snobbish tone.

Maybe I'll just buy an index fund and outperform them all!
