I have the jitters about Bogleheads (or "kinda" BH) who are considering selling their equity position and looking to stuff it in cash/mmf. Do you not understand how this thing works? Hint: buy low sell high!

I think even Buffett said something like "if you arent willing to hold a stock for 10 years, dont think about buying it to hold for 10 minutes".
Of course, Buffett doesnt buy and hold forever himself, and I think its fair to say his approach has outpaced the usual buy and hold index fund strategy by alot (I think its done 2x the S&P?), but the average (or even 99th percentile) investor just doesnt have that level of skill.
