New Functionality: Threshold Returns for Models

This weekend we added Threshold Returns, a small (but important) new piece of data to our models.

Threshold returns provide a view into the annualized returns for the underlying symbol while the model/indicator value is above / below / between the extreme values for that model/indicator. Additionally, the percentage of time the model/indicator spends in each area (above / below / between) is provided.

An example Threshold Returns table is shown in figure 1.

For now, threshold returns are shown only on models in the "stocks" section but we will be adding them to all models and other indicators (Optix, etc) soon.

Currently, threshold returns are provided for the following models:
