Zeelotes' First Law of Market Timing:
There is no such thing as a great buy signal that doesn't seem insane at the time.

-----------
"However, the biggest challenge is the buy signal, which is usually at the trough of a massive face-ripping drawdown where everyone is contemplating a dive off a 100-foot cliff. Humans have a much harder time following rules that force them to buy after a drawdown."

(Also see Zeelotes rule.)
