    Nice to see the simulated numbers. Some huge draw owns in Summer of 08 and into 09 but rewards for those who could stomach. A system that can side step that; maybe picks up the momentum crash earlier and gets one out after 20% down or something even if one missed the first 10% back up. That’d be a winner. Too bad future doesn’t repeat (or even always rhyme).

    Very nice info on Quantitative Value index. Don’t know if this is the best place to have this discussion, but the biggest difference I see between systematic value investing strategies such as QVAL and typical discretionary value investing methodologies is industry/sector-specific valuation metrics. Have you guys tested using industries/sectors in your value strategy and found they don’t add value? I’ve seen a few scattered places in the literature where industries/sectors are used but it seems pretty rare. Don’t really get it because mean/median valuation multiples can vary widely for different industries.
