    Not sure what's an advertisement about a paper that I believe can help investors/traders, and won an award for the approach.

    You reference an absolute return product which has zero correlation to US stocks, US bonds, and emerging markets, which has outperformed 2 out of 3 while NOT being constant beta since inception, and with negative downside capture against our benchmark. The type of strategy and objective matters if you're going to address results.

    Which equities? You reference an absolute return product which has zero correlation to US stocks, US bonds, and emerging markets, which has outperformed 2 out of 3 while NOT being constant beta since inception, and with negative downside capture against our benchmark.

    Second paper will be released once the official announcement has been made. Appreciate the sarcasm ;)

    I would encourage you to read that paper and the second award winning paper to be released in the next couple of weeks. That is not traditional technical analysis by any means. There is signaling power in relative movement based on cause and effect.

    I did not say small caps were crashing in absolute terms. It is an alpha crash given how fast that outperformance was removed.

    Not sure why you say that is "nonsense." All alpha and outperformance has been erased relative to the S&P 500. If you believe relative outperformance and ratio analysis has no merit, I look forward to your thoughts on the award winning white papers I co-authored.

    I may end up being totally wrong, but the volume spike was notable. Happy new year friend.

    That incorporates trading fees in the backtest, and one can resolve tax issues through a tax deferred account.

    Nice to hear from you. Has been a frustrating trade, but all I know is that frustrating trades can be big winners. Best wishes and luck to you in 2014.

    We will disagree very much on this. A 90 year old investor, whose portfolio quite literally can not withstand any kind of correction, should not be compared to the S&P 500. Missing from the discussion is risk tolerance, risk profile, and correlations over time.

    To be clear, I am specifically talking about being priced in for bonds and emerging markets.
