    Sorry if this isn’t the place for this question, but why such a high allocation to Treasuries?

  • The “dump” asset for allocations is cash/tbills. So “treasuries” means short-term bills/cash

  • Jacob Rothman

    Right, but for an aggressive portfolio you have only 55% equity and 40% non-risk assets. This must be a tactical stance.

  • definitely. commodities/intl equity are in cash right now

  • Alex Dvorscak

    I’m not sure I understand why the QVAL allocation is at 100% now even though it’s time series momentum is negative and the moving average is negative or barely positive depending on the day.
