I know this has been a lot of info to digest. So, here is the main point I’m trying to make, using the examples previously provided …
The KEY ISSUE in this allocation debate, *insofar* as it applies to testing and development A vs B vs C comparisons, hinges on COMPOUNDING. % Equity allocation naturally uses compounding. Fixed $ (either measured by per-trade Capital-commitment or by per-trade Risk-exposure) does not suffer from the potentially horribly-misleading decisions which compounding sets the stage for.
Using popular lingo, I would classify results and decision making from Compounded allocation while testing A vs B as “Fake News”.
This is true for stocks, futures, forex, options, mutual funds, bitcoin, Texas hold’em, and Ponzi schemes. It’s just basic math and scientific method.
