When 32 market-timing newsletters were compared to the S&P 500 Index over a 10-year period, not one of them bested the broad market index. The primary reason for this inability to time the market is the high concentration of returns and losses that occur each year in just a few days. In a recent 10-year period, 100% of the total stock market gain occurred over just 20 days. It is impossible to predict such short periods in advance. Professors studied 15,000 predictions by 237 market timers and concluded that, "There is no evidence that [market timing] newsletters can time the market."   Time pickers mistakenly ...

(David Babson, author, adviser) "What it really takes to improve your returns and diminish your risks is a willingness to stop focusing exclusively on the movement of the markets."

Like the direction of the stock market or the future price of a particular stock or mutual fund. This addiction is a particularly bad one. Not only are our brains hard-wired to believe we can predict the future and make sense out of random acts, it rewards us for doing so.
