    Hi Dr. Gray. I posted a while back, and love this book. I have one quick question for you. When using ROBUST, should we be comparing the Domestic Value and Domestic Momentum to the same index when instituting our risk management controls? I thought we should, but because Value and Momentum stocks have different qualities, I wasn’t 100% sure. Thanks for clearing this up!
