No broker will ever say that. A slow but reliable method for exiting stock market positions is called the DEATH CROSS. When that signal is shown it means the market is headed lower. There will be times when using this strategy the client will lose money, but over the long run it has an excellent profit record. He will always be out during 30, 40, 50% declines.
