You've got your units wrong. I think it's more like -

CAGR / GSD squared = 1.30 / 1.20 * 1.20 = 1.30 / 1.44

Elan


Elan,

I am not sure if you are correct. Certainly for Sharpe/GSD, the GSD value in the above example would be 20 and not 1.20.

To confirm how Zeelotes calculates the Sharpe/GSD ratio, look at the first table in the first post in this thread.
