Came across this thread which basically advises t-test for difference in means across periods to calculate whether our edge is deteriorating. The catch being that this test will probably not be accurate for most lower frequency strategies.

How to compute the alpha decay of a strategy?

What other methods can we use to test for loss of edge btwn periods? Are some more robust to sample size than others?
