Remember: the market can be "wrong" longer than you have money to invest in the opposite way.

Of course you can time the market. Lots of people do it rather well. TimingCube certainly beats the averages, and there are other methods which do quite well also. You do not have to be right on every trade, but you do have to be willing to cut your losses.

What was bad about the bubble? Nothing if you were willing to sell when it broke. Just pay attention to the market, and it will tell you when to buy and sell.

Valuation measures are not good for timing - that is the point of the first comment. The market can be "wrong" for a long time. Just find a way to take advantage of it, and be willing to get out when necessary.
