There are no statistics in intercst's study! It's like saying my bank statements are statistically invalid. You keep looking for the missing stawberries in the wrong places.

It is intercst who, in response to a criticism of the study put forward by Datasnooper (who earlier revealed the invailidty of the research backing the Dogs of the Dow strategy), said that the study was produced in such a way that it is not possible to assign it any "statisitcal confidence levels." If you don't like the word "statistics," take it up with intercst. I think he did the right thing in acknowledging that the claims he makes to have discovered the safe withdrawal rate are statistically invalid claims.

Here's the link to the intercst response to the Datasnooper charge.
