Pretty interesting. TLT does not go back to 1985, so your backtest was actually from 2003.

Here's using WHOSX from 2000 to give two peak to peak cycles (which I much prefer to starting at a trough):

When the P/B ratio drops below 1.35 sell some BRK stock (maybe half your position?) and use the proceeds to buy long dated deep in the money BRK call options. The longest dated leaps are generally about two years out. The low strikes generally offer roughly 2:1 leverage, maybe 2.5:1

Happen to have a backtest on this system from ~ March 2000 to now?
