Fresh New All-Time High (5 Stocks Long, Fully Hedged by Long RWM)…

What happened to your other strategy, is it still around?

The fiveHedged “all-market” strategy was updated recently (see earlier posts) to provide better liquidity (lower turnover, and hence lower slippage), without changing the key fundamental/technical stock-selection rules. Instead of selling/buying all five stocks on Monday, the strat now averages around 2 stock swaps, hence allows much improved liquidity/low-slippage.

The results are significantly superior, both in backtests since Jan 2008, and live-trades here on C2 (since early Feb).

The slippage issue was a concern for some traders, which is why I wanted to focus on that issue, and consolidate to just one strategy. Having improved on the slippage issue [significantly] there is no longer a need to limit the universe to S&P stocks (which was the fiveLIQUID strategy, for which I am no longer taking any subs), hence I am running with 100% focus on only the one strat (fiveHedged):
