TMFEldrehad, I think that there is major flaw in TMF CAPS.

 

The main purpose is to outperform the market by gain%

 

When you make underperform pick you get an advantage in CAPS.

 

Example. You make underperfom pick and your stock goes down 10% while market goes up 20%.

 

Your final result in CAPS = outperform of the market by 30%.

 

When actually with real portfolio you would've made 10% when the market would've made 20% so therefore you underperformed the market by 10%.

 

+30% vs -10% is a huge difference huh?

 

You would be surprised what your real rating would be after this adjustment ;)

 

P.S. English is my 4th language sorry if I made some mistakes.
