Yep.

 

Alas, also tied with a handful of my colleagues, but I'll take it. :)

Congrats!  Kind of ironic that all 11 Timers of the Year earned that distinction by not doing any timing during the year.  Just buy and hold. bull.gif



People think the Holy Grail is something looked for but never found. In fact, it is something often found but rarely recognized.

Exactly, that is how Da-Chief won all those years, just say I am long and never go short. Means nothing.

In the 1990's I looked at Timer Digest and when I saw there was no requirement to time the market, just go long and hold all year we said no thanks. I personally have no knowledge of Da-Chiefs record. Did he actually time short term trades during a year or just time a low which he is the best at it ever and hold long or did he actually trade? I do not have that knowledge so I retract my comment, my apology Wollie, was just making an observation as all the yearly market timers went long in 2016 and have not traded. If we live long enough to see this wave off the SP-500 low at 1810 top when Da-Chief says its a low buy it.
