We had our first question yesterday along the lines of "help me to develop a better strategy":

I'm inclined to define non-specific strategy development questions as off-topic since they can drag the quality of questions down. Questions should ideally be related to a specific model, application, or tool, something tangible.

Should this question be in-scope? Are there things that we can put in the FAQ to confine these kinds of questions?

I voted to close that question. I think it's vague, for starters, and makes this forum look like EliteTrader or something.

Questions may involve model ideas, but they should be specific to a particular need.

What are some reversion strategies you've had success with?
