We denote this variable ????(????) when it comes to asset ????. – Then, very varied developments in nature – that's when it comes to anticipated go back and volatility – may also endanger the earnings acquired from a trend-following mechanism. whilst relocating from a regime with a low volatility and a good anticipated go back to a regime with a excessive volatility and a damaging anticipated go back with the consistent publicity of ex ante forty% of volatility, the discovered go back saw over such switches can spoil the functionality of the funding approach. We degree such heterogeneity via variables: we denote respectively ????(????) and ????(????) absolutely the distinction among the minimal and the utmost expectation and volatility around the regimes of asset ????. the bigger this distinction, the tougher it may be for trend-following ideas to deal with such switches among regimes. – eventually, to seize this adverse top rate saw within the formerly pointed out plots, we upload the variable 1commo (????) that could be a variable that's equivalent to at least one if the ????th asset is a commodity and nil if now not.
