Post subject:  Seasonal investing question

Dear all,

I have been wondering something lately and I would appreciate the insight that many of you could provide.

I'm considering for my own investments to stay in from late Oct. through late May or late July and then be out of the market for August, September and the first half of October. That means that any gains I make will be taxed at the short-term rate of 25%.

At what point would you make the decision to stay in the market as that 25% might be greater than a potential 5 to 10% correction? I.e. when is it interesting to sell your gains in a taxable account?

Please note that I do understand that it's one thing to be taxed 25% off of your gains and to receive a 10% correction on your entire portfolio.

I'm trying to see all points here.
