Default Can-Do Task4

I'm a little bit confused.
"While it is possible that when implementing this hedging strategy the optimal number of assays or the minimum decay factor should be changed,continue to use your recommendation from Task3."

So, should i use #assay and minimum to mine found in Task 3? Or should i seek a brand new combination of 3 variables? Thank all!

Use what you already found and you don't have to test other possible inputs for that.

If I iterate it by 0.01, I get 0.02 as my X which maximises my Metric

I initially Iterated by 0.025, and I ended up with 0.05 as my X which maximises my Metric

Isn't this too low?

Depends on your data. Zero is a possible answer as well

Remember that no hedging (X=0.00) is stated as being a valid answer. Therefore, I would say no, this isn't too low.
