3. Zero reliance on large monthly returns or weeks that offsets all others, no individual large stock gains in a day or bias from the ‘lucky’ price moves and no variable position sizing, all positions equally sized.

4. On-going A.I. based algorithm discovery and monitoring managing a stable of around 28 computations.
