Quoting 
I am always interested in statistical approaches to trading. What is the name of the thread 1.5 years ago?

Make an effort and find it. I wrote only 3-4 threads. All of them are about my theories on trading.

p.s.
Each I can prove!

I just did, I think I just wasted 15 minutes I can never get back. From those threads, it seems to me you take radical positions just for the sake of being radical. Theoretical positions that help no one in making real money in the real world.

For the last week I clicked on this thread and have learned NOTHING so far. I must be too stupid, but I'm done with this thread.

The Truth is the what I call strategy #2 is not really a strategy, but a basket of two strategies. The first strategy in that basket is strategy #1.
What are NP and DD of a second strategy in that basket?
Please don't think about capital, sharpe ratio or any thing else. You have all the data for an answer.

NP: -30K
DD: I don't know how an exact max DD could be computed, but it would have to be at least 30K if NP is -30K

Well I guess this is finally answered:

Is this strategy good enough? A resounding NO-Good Luck!

Guys, this is a classic case of a megalomaniac who enjoys yanking other peoples' chains for the sake of some sordid ego gratification.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm too old to play games and chase the shadow of a clown.

If the OP had any genuine interest in sharing something of value, he wouldn't take this pseudo zen/Socratic modus operandi--which has only served to grate our nerves--and simply come straight forward with the information. Instead, he treats us like 3 year olds.

I'm betting there is nothing behind this house of guessing mirrors that will add anything of value other than an example of how NOT to be helpful. If you enjoy a Hollywoodesque drama which tries to pluck an eyelash off an ant, carry on, but I think this joker is simply playing you for the sake of his own pleasure, not unlike that of a troll.

You're not alone--no one else has learned anything either. Actually, you are very smart to realize this is a waste of your time.
