Hey everyone,

So I've been in this site now since July and am very happy with my TSP performance since I've started using the seasonal strategy. Currently following 7980. My quarterly return was the best quarter I've ever had! So thanks for all the work in outting together the strategies and calculator.

I love the site, it's extremely helpful; however, one downside that I've noticed is that it only gives you the top (or worst) 100 strategies based on the filter selected.

The only way to find different strategies that, for example, have a lower std dev, is to manually pull up each strategy, which is too time consuming, or read the threads in hopes to come across a new strategy that people are discussing.

For example, in the forums, I found 16292, 16198, 12523, 12367, 16384, 16013, 13682, and 12216, that all have 30% or greater mean, with a much lower std dev (around 5%) than the very popular 7980, which has a std dev of 16% and a mean around 36%.

How do I find more strategies like the ones above I just listed? My friend on here, Joker, convinced me to get on 7980 instead following the top mean performer, like I was doing. He's right too in that there is too much std dev for the return; the more I think about it the more I want a strategy with an even lower std dev with a really high upside which reduces the possibility of a negative year. I know there has been Some discussion on this before, but not much that I can find about using the calc in a different way.

Anyone have a strategy with a mean of 33-35% with a std dev of 6-9%?

Anyway, thanks for your inputs.

Jesrich
