Has anybody backtested what would happen if 100% of cash goes to the asset class with the highest Relative Strength?.

I suspect it would increase returns a little and increase risks a lot.
Given the goals of the QTAA approach of moderate but very smoothed returns, that probably isn't the right trade-off.
If you wanted to be more wild, you'd probably start with a different approach.
