The average return for the six strategies in 2022 was -6.4%. The DOWW long/short strategy ended the year with a profit. Mean-reversion strategies, MRSPYW and MRDOWW, were down the most in 2022 due to a difficult environment for this trading style and several failed rallies. Cross-sectional momentum strategies were also down due to erratic action in equities and commodities. By mid-year ETFNRW was up nearly 9% but ended the year with a small loss. Below is the chart for the ensemble performance only.
