We sold to cash yesterday, and today the DOW is up over 300 pts. Now I call that a bottom.

Looks like I should start buying when the market is off peak by 80% or so.

Well, folks, looks like Wash Post's boffo review of the book in my OP may have done it:
"The Wall Street Journal Guide to the End of Wall Street as We Know It: What You Need to Know About the Greatest Financial Crisis of Our Time--and How to Survive It"
Dow up around 7% since that review.

Yeah, well... 7% of nothing (left) is still nothing.
