Did you see much cutting of dividends in your portfolio in the past 2 years?

DEX,

Well, I tried to listen (and to understand) Terry Laundry's T Theory. After a few minutes of listening, I decided to allow you to suggest when it might be a good time to buy into a high yield bond fund. I will patiently wait.

None. I sold most financial stocks (C,BAC,WM) in 2007 before the price/dividend collapse when the credit market problems made earnings projections meaningless. I did hold GE too long (until late 2008), but sold before the dividend cut was announced. Most of my stocks continued raising them. Overall my dividend based 'pension' is up almost 40% since my retirement in Oct 2006.

I've been reading technical analysis for years so I guess I take it for granted. You don't have to understand or agree with techniques but it is good as a framework for what might happen in the markets in the future.
Basically, a peak into the end of the month, a decline into the end of the year and then lower peaks from there until a bottom in the '13 to '16 time period based upon his 80 year cycle work. Another bull market doesn't get started until '20 - if I remember correctly.
