The only response I have remaining is that maybe some of us have full time jobs that require our full attention during trading hours and that we can't pay attention on a daily basis to see what the indicators are supposedly telling us constantly.

Frankly, I'd rather live my life working hard and earning my raises and proving my worth and earning my job security, to have more money to sock away, rather than putting in half an effort with one eye on the market day in and out.

Even if would make me more money in the market... which it won't anyway.

Okay, I lied, one more response remaining. You love to use that "last 5 years number", which is one of those "lies, damn lies, and statistics" things. What you fail to acknowledge is that the indexes have really made money 4 (3?, I think 4) of the last 5 years. You know, the exactly opposite of how often your personal favorite Timing scheme has actually beaten the market.
