For what it's worth, I used sharpe in my 4th attempt, explicitly labeled it as sharpe, but explained how it was not a traditional. Sharpe ratio (as it wasn't using return on investments, but the mean tax rate), and I got MMR today.

Hi arto83 and mel.fel,

wrt sharpe ratio as risk free what did you use ? In the justification of the use of sharpe ratio "how much" did you analyse/support your choice ?

Thanks
