"Small" difference do make a large difference over time.

I'm not arguing that point. Never was. Yes 1-2% over 30 years can make a big difference.

That is why every trade needs to be carefully planned and executed.

My point, and the point of the original article, is to not be afraid of jumping in at the "wrong" time. You could stand on the sidelines for the next 30 years worrying about being "right" and essentially lose all your buying power to inflation. Get in the game, the law of averages over time will take care of a few "wrong" entry points.
