Clearly we are talking at cross purposes...What is this table?

Since 2003 Bill has made available a ranking of screens....


Ahhh!
OK, it's a monthly WWL test sorted on the trailing year weekly performance results.
I didn't get that, I thought it was just a report on the VL screen performance.
Never mind, I'll go back to sleep.

FWIW in the past I found a (smoothed) 3 month lookback WWL added value, but not much.

I still kinda like my brain-dead method for picking screens:
Find out which long screens do best in bull markets and which do best in bear markets.
Then forget about timing.
Throw out the bull market ones and use the bear market ones all the time.
If the bad times are OK, the good times will take care of themselves.
