I agree that making money is the important part, but what made more money? Was it being short for 5 straight down days with many more to come, or did looking (and waiting) for all the "confirmations" make money? Your response does not even address my question. I said nothing about "calling a top" or "being right" or anything concerning "ego" or "gurus". I'm not trying to pick a fight. It simply strikes me that people are not curious, but instead accept what they have been told about the markets.
