It made a lot of sense. The only thing I took issue with was the idea of turning 10,000 into 1 million (insert your currency of choice) by using compound interest and making 2% per month over 7 years.
Its a bit like saying the way to get rich is to buy low and sell high, sounds simple but its bloody difficult to do consistently.

He also neglects to explain that you have to invest your ENTIRE sum every time in order to make that 2%.
Now when your making 2% on 10,000 thats a bit easier than making 2% on 950,000.
Plus ANY black swan event in the 7 year period will wipe everything out.
So it aint all that easy.

the black swan would have benefited a positive choice portfolio of long shorts.

hedge funds incorporate the theories of Fama French Five Factor Model . I have done some research into this. for instance small stocks outperform big stocks over time, so you could be short/long ftse100/ftse 250, and short/long ftse small cap/ftse fledgling

if u chart this it is very consistent.

also value outperforms growth over time. u can check this and see it is correct.
