How long do you think it would take the average person to learn?

Someone already familiar with mechanical investing, and backtesting on the other backtesters, can learn GTR1 in a few months of off-and-on again effort, I suppose.

There are a few steps to learning it, I think. First, you've got to read all of Robbie's posts on GTR1 to give you a general background of how it works and what it is doing, and the changes through the last few years.

Then, pick your favorite screen that you already understand from VL or SiPro, and search this board for posts that others have made with GTR1 translations.

Finally, work through the translation, using the glossary at Read any posts having to do with the translation of that screen. There will be many nuances to understand, so you have to work through a number of screens and follow discussions here.
