SYSTEM BLENDS.

Stock Market Trading Blends

According to Modern Portfolio Theory, the only "free lunch" in the world of investing is the all important concept of Diversification.

The concept states that by combining investments that have low correlation to each other, you can reduce overall portfolio volatility while still maintaining good return (also known as maximizing Sharpe Ratio).

In the context of our service, the subscriber would benefit by spreading their investment over two or more systems rather than putting all their money in one system. Doing so would effectively give the subscriber greater staying power through drawdowns as non-correlated systems tend to not have drawdowns at the same time.

Below is a correlation matrix of our systems computed using monthly returns:

There are many system combinations and allocations the subscriber can construct. Below are some blends we think are quite interesting using correlation as the main criterion:

Blend 1 invests using an equal allocation to HYDRA and WEEKLY STOCK SELECTOR. These two systems are conceptually very different and therefore have a low correlation. Note that the blend has a higher Sharpe Ratio and lower drawdown than either of the individual systems.

PERF_BLEND1

Blend 2 invests using an equal allocation to NATURAL RESOURCE TRADER and RISK-ON/RISK-OFF. These two have highly distinct underlying algorithms exhibiting a very low correlation.

PERF_BLEND2

Blend 3 invests using an equal allocation to HYDRA, NATURAL RESOURCE TRADER and RISK-ON/RISK-OFF. This blend combines 3 very diverse investment strategies, each one capitalizing on a distinct concept/edge - this produces a more consistent performance and risk profile over time.
