What they mean I think , and I agree its not obvious is that a non-stock pickers market occurs when correlations are reduced and almost all stocls are up or down on a given day.From a certain point of view a non stock pickers market mean active investors are more crushed by index fund performance than usual.
2008 was a clear example of a stock pickers market but they were mostly not good at it.for example avoiding financials would have been sufficient to outperform the S=P 500 and the total market by a lot.
