From this I conclude that the RtW strategy requires finer granularity.

One way of looking at it:
At heart, RtW is just a momentum/relative strength technique.
So, this result is consistent with RRS: checking frequently helps a lot.
RRS189 with 1-week hold is a lot better than RRS189 with 6-week hold.
But, interestingly, it doesn't really increase the number of trades much---
mainly it just improves their timing, getting you out of the zoomers
soon after they top out on a relative basis, rather than living
through a meanginful drop before leaving.
