Another bit of information on the blend -- the Normalized Trough Count blend to be exact. Over the full history, 1989 to 7/19/2008, here are the # of times that the various olympic screens were selected, and the average gain.

Olympic Level    Begin Year  Avg ROI   #
Silver & Bronze 1997 3.81% 8
Bronze 1986 3.84% 81
Silver 1986 8.40% 71
Gold 1986 9.17% 380

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the measures select the Gold screens so often, even though they are a small representation of the whole potential screen list.
