Hotfoot asks:

<<This is probably a dumb question but I did not see the BTD5 explained under the "Dow Investing Explained" page.

The BTD5 does show up however, under Step 6 in the TMF School.

Is it out of favor? Is the FF too similar?>>

BTD5 is the shorthand designation for the initial Dow strategy espoused by O'Higgins in his book "Beating the Dow." Within TMF that strategy has been expanded by a number of other variations that back-testing reveals as potentially more rewarding. The Foolish Four is one example of those variations.
