The following takes the top ten measures and applies one of my better timing systems. In this case, there are only two bearish periods from 7/1/2007 to the present. I extended it back in time to take in the full brunt of the bear market from 2007 to 2009... in other words, to raise the bar and make it more difficult to have a position return. In this case, as with the previous backtest, during the bearish period I'm just sitting in One Year Treasuries. The S&P 500 drops over -5% during this time period.
