My favorite answers:

How do you mix quantitative asset allocation with qualitative views?

Empirical or theoretical insights that have shaped your thinking

Why is the first principal component a proxy for the market portfolio?

How do I graphically represent the evolution of a covariance matrix over time?

Which approach dominates? Mathematical modelling or data mining?

Will do - I should have an approach by end of month

This is an excellent paper, thank you. Another paper that solves for weights given some expected return vector and uncertainty dispersion is Robust Bayesian Allocation by Meucci: papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=681553

comment How do I replicate John Hussman's recession forecasting methodology?
You can find all of this except LEI at the St. Louis Federal Reserve bank: research.stlouisfed.org/fred2 You can find the LEI at : conference-board.org/data/bcicountry.cfm?cid=1

I agree with your interpretations. Other factors to consider are leading economic indicators, credit spreads between high-grade and investment grade firms, industrial production, and commodity prices.

comment What is the difference between the methods for calculating VaR?
Expected Shortfall also has the benefit of being a "coherent" risk measure, unlike VaR. Most of the recent literature in portfolio construction and optimization tends to use Expected Shortfall (or equivalently Conditional Value at Risk)

It is purely empirical and cannot be modeled analytically.
