So has the mustachian horde officially endorsed market timing as the new standard advice for all newcomers? I'm seeing an awful lot of love in here for what looks to me like really bad advice, but I don't drive this train.
If you are all actually serious about this "market timing is totally fine" advice you're rolling around in, can I at least suggest you dispense that advice with a required disclaimer? Something like "we generally recognize that market timing is always a losing game in the long run, but we recommend it anyway because..." then fill in the blank with whatever your current justification is for reducing diversification and making big contrarian bets on the market. That way people have at least been warned that you're trying to fuck up their shit.
What is this mustachian horde of which you speak?
I always thought the "Join the Cult" phrase on MMM, was meant ironically. From your comments It seems you have taken it quite literally.
Why do you care if there is "an awful lot of love" for active investing?
Isn't this is a forum for the exchange of ideas of and pertaining to mustachianism?
If you find a logical crack in someone else's argument, why not just attack the faulty logic and argue on the merits?
You are clearly a smart dude, but you are not responsible for others opinions, or arguments. Only your own.
From my perspective you have
1. Equated my defending of my own decision to pursue dual momentum with trying to profit off of other people's investment decisions.
2. Claimed that I am trying to "fuck up other people's shit."
3. Claimed that defending the rationale of my own investment decisions is somehow disloyal to other readers.
You have felt comfortable making these statements about me, which I believe to be meritless. So I will make my own statement about you.
Cut out the sanctimonious crap.
Smart people can disagree.
The only way to convince people of your own advice (which for some reason you see as your responsibility to dispense) is to make smart arguments, which you are perfectly capable of.
Leave the moralistic platitudes to the preachers and politicians. At least they get paid for it.
