After a great deal of thought and consideration (and chatting privately with Aitrus), my wife and I have finally settled on a modified seasonal strategy that we believe improves our chances of higher-than-market long-term returns, while at the same time meets our need, ability, and willingness to take risk. We plan to begin implementing the strategy with both of our accounts on the last trading day of November 2017.

While we were initially planning to implement an "F-S-C-C-C-F-C/F-F-F-C-C-S" strategy, we attempted to dial-back what we felt was a monthly all-or-nothing market-timing aspect.

J - 75% F / 25% C
F - 100% S
M - 25% F / 75% C
A - 25% F / 75% C
M - 25% F / 75% C
J - 75% F / 25% C
J - 50% F / 50% C
A - 75% F / 25% C
S - 75% F / 25% C
O - 25% F / 75% C
N - 25% F / 75% C
D - 100% S

While I hope this post might help someone looking to implement a similar strategy, I would also welcome any thoughts/feedback.

Thanks!
