  1. a Yield of 38% and a 16% DD?

    What do proper HF's demand from their Traders?

  2. yes proper....

    it is subjective your right.

    I am told that I am too conservative...can you imagine that?

    I thought that DD was the most important number. but then to maximize yield is another thing. You got to pick the best time to expose the $'s to not effect the max DD.

    Then if there is a goal per month...what to do?...if you must let the market dictate the moves, what does that have to do with ones goals?

    many trade-offs....
