Another approach to your optimization is to use the Sharpe ratio, but modify the risk-free rate as a constant rather than using the treasury yield. For example, something I might call Sharpe(8) using a figure of 8% as the risk-free rate. You could vary that number and see how it affects future returns.

No comment on the results I posted? I'd like to hear what you think about how this test turned out. Is it what you expected? What conclusions would you draw from it, if any?
