More details

The Combined Strategy has lower risk and better risk/return ratio than other strategies. However, one

needs a larger trading capital to minimize the influence of the brokerage commissions.

It worth mentioning that 50/50 capital division may be not optimal for some markets. For the bear market, for example, it is better to use larger portion of the capital to sell short. In our history files we consider only 50/50 case.
