Hey! Aren't you one of the key architects of the database, backtester, etc??? Say it ain't so!

I've done very poorly since 2008, when I started. I do think MI does work, but there will be long times, often too long, where the system will go into hibernation, like Decision Moose and many value-with-momentum screens.

While I am not a math major,I am an engineer. I think we are all missing something on the math. A five screen blend 3 hold deep with 45% CAGR is just too perfect. There's got to be some math that says that this 45% unrepeatable, full of *%*%#@!
