So, "tail ratio" is bigger when returns are positively skewed? As in, a few big wins and many small losses? Is that what it means?

If so, then higher tail ratio would probably mean that you're using a trend following strategy.

So this post is saying that trend following strategies have better out of sample results than mean reversion strategies?
