Congratulations on your work in "A Dash of Insight". In a world of noise ADOI stands out for conciseness and clarity.
Don't change a thing about ADOI or I will hate you forever and you don't want that!

Proteus -- Yes. The SLFSI is a deterministic risk control approach. As such, it has nothing to do with the current market price.

The point is to reduce positions when risk is higher, keeping personal risk at a constant level.

As to selling after stocks have declined, many methods do this, including the 200-day moving average and similar approaches.

The investor could choose to ignore the signal, but then why have the method?

Good question -- thanks.

Jeff, should we assume that negative changes in factors such as the SLFSI has a deterministic (as opposed to discretionary) effect on equity allocation? Doesn't this imply selling after stocks have already gone down, or is this more risk management?
