1. As a non-insider your access to information will lag behind price. One may in fact lose opportunity while waiting for clarity, which is long after the market has made its decision.
2. Even if you are correct in your assessment and did anticipate future conditions accurately this does nothing for you until the market is ready to move on its own terms. Great example is when Jesse Livermore went broke early in his career trying to act purely on such an assessment before the market was ready. The market is always right.
