"Don't think you understood what I posted. You get out if your preferred signal tells you to get out. No problem. If your preferred signal turns bullish, you get back in. No problem, right?
This is just the normal way we do timing.
If, WHILE YOUR PREFERRED SIGNAL IS BEARISH, there are huge negative breadth days, however you define it, you put some of your money back in."

THen what? Do you just stay invested while your "preferred" signal stays bearish?
What happens the day the $$$ you "put back in" falls into loss territory AND your "preferred" signal is still bearish?

I'm not saying you're wrong, but if you're going to Buy based on a short-term signal (while ignoring your "preferred" signal), then you have to say exactly what you would use to decide on what you just bought. Are you willing to dump it in 3 days? When it turns into a loss? Would you be "mechanical" about that?
