Thank you for sharing, and HAPPY NEW YEAR.

I have some follow-up questions, please and thanks:
How do you allocate the % of your total capital between Wealth Builder Series vs. Buy & Hold?
For example, if SP500 goes up 55% of the time over the very long-term, would you allocate 55% of your total capital to Buy & Hold when ema 13 is above ema 168?
Would you allocate 45% of your total capital to Buy & Hold when ema 13 is below ema 168?
Do you have any suggestions for beginners on how to allocate % capital between Trading vs Buy & Hold with changing market trends?

I also appreciate inputs from Cobra and other board members on how beginners may want to allocate capital between Trading vs Buy & Hold. Many thanks. :)

In this setup all trades are guided by the TA setups. B&H Tracker is just a reference point to ascertain performance of active management to passive management. [Does active management hurts or pays].
What is remarkable about this setup is that its alpha (profitability) is 3x that of B&H but without any increase in Beta (volatility) relative to B&H Tracker.

"Asset allocation" is beyond the scope of this post as it requires knowledge of your investment objectives as well as risk tolerance and many more attributes (Make note of standard Deviation of this setup - not for a faint heart... ;) )

Good luck in your trading...
