<<Can you suggest any tested investment scheme whose tests (of whatever kind) HAVE predictive
power? In other words, whatever strategy you use, how did you determine it was better than the
others? Since you disdain back-testing, have you some effective forward-testing method?

The only forward-testing method I know of had a disadvantage. It was in Stravinsky's "Histoire du
Soldat" where, as a result of a pact with the devil, the soldier got a subscription to the next day's
stock list.>>

Good lord this is tiring! I've stated my reasons so many times that I'm getting blue in the face. Please look at my posts directed to orangeblood. This is no longer of any benefit to me so I am withdrawing from this debate.
