Advanced/professional short-term investors should note that SR has significant positive skewness in it's return distribution. This indicates that investors can expect SR to recover from drawdowns quickly. Which makes SR a good candidate for investing on short-term bullish trends or even counter-trends hoping for a pull-back.

SR has more chance of extreme outcomes than the SP500 index. Therefore, SR must receive a lower allocation than SP500 in your portfolio. SP500 index usually has shorter drawdown period than SR.

Based on your interest in SR you may find it interesting to know that TPNL, ECYT and AMRN have all shown remarkable performance this year and deserve to be on every investor's watchlist.
