All I can say is if I do not have the disciplione to stay out of the long side of the market when the GMI equals zero, then I am just a gambler. The way to make money on the long side is when there is a confirmed up-trend in progress. The market is now in a confirmed down-trend. When will it end? No one knows. I just step off of the train until it turns around and the GMI returns to 4 or more.
