Bear Markets

Random Roger's insights into bear markets. This guy is a stockbroker who has to manage clients and worry about things like managed funds, sector/country allocation, blah, blah, blah... BUT he still has some very simple criteria for recognizing a bear market and minimizing its damage.
His style is different from mine. He is more of a long term investor, remains invested most of the time while 'tweaking' his portfolio. I sometimes trade and sometimes invest, depending on what the market has to offer, but a bear market, I just get the hell out! I'm waiting until it falls low enough to start nibbling again... the facts above tell me that its probably not time yet.
