So the first steps in putting together this basket have been accomplished via some guidelines.1. Assuming the basket starts out with a finite amount- opted for $20,0002. Basket does not have to be fully invested at all times. Did set a minimum of 50%3. Decided on three sizes - bite $800, half-bite $400, nibble $200.4. Purchases will be near half-bites, or multiples of half-bites5. Sales will be near nibbles, or multiples of nibbles6. Dividends will accumulate as cash. 7. Have to make some assumption about transaction costs.8. Unlike SEA, no min i.e. Micro-caps are valid purchases9. Need a method to avoid bias of post market close pricing.
