Some followers have asked how would the HST model react to a sudden and important drop as it was 2008 or 2001.

No one knows the future, but we can tell about the past, backtesting the model.

Here is how the HST model reacted* during bear market in 2000-2006 after the dot-com bubble:

 

And here is the model's performance* in 2007-2009, during the financial crisis. 

 

 * remember that the Hari Seldon Trader model (HST) uses 3x leveraged ETFs and that's also a reason why the performance are magnified.

 

 

Who is Hari Seldon

(from Wikipedia)

Hari Seldon is a fictional character in Isaac Asimov's Foundation series.

In his capacity as mathematics professor on the planet Trantor, Seldon develops psychohistory, an algorithmic science that allows him to predict the future in probabilistic terms. On the basis of his psychohistory he is able to predict the eventual fall of the Galactic Empire and to develop a means to shorten the millennia of chaos to follow. The significance of his discoveries lies behind his nickname "Raven" Seldon.

Our team decided to dedicate this work and this model to this amazing character, creating the even-more-fictional character of "Hari Seldon Trader".
