Just noticed something FLARAM posted in https://boards.fool.com/i-am-working-on-a-low-draw-down-scre... , which referred to an ETF screen he showed last September. As best I can parse, it looks for the top 3 ETFs among 12 ranked by a combination of high momentum and low correlation, each defined in a particular way (with certain conditions leading to a safe investement). The screen uses a function I hadn't seen before (tscorr) and is given by: https://gtr1.net/2013/?~Protective%20Asset%20Allocation%20Fu...

I'm curious if it's possible to use this approach on screens rather than ETFs. My gtr1 backtester skills are not at a point where I can make that work. I tried replacing the universe(s) of ETFs with simple screens, to no avail. Can anyone guide me, or let me know that it's not possible?

Any help appreciated!

My gtr1 backtester skills aren’t up to that point either. I programmed GPM up in Excel and rgearyiii
was kind enough to come up with the unique weighting and correlation functions that made it work.
So the screen code is 95% Robbie and 5% mine. I did change both the standard weighting and
momentum functions after I analyzed results and noticed they were not linear factors.
