He is technically correct. A 4.00 ratio is a 4.00 ratio no matter the combination to get there. Where I start to disagree with Al is that he believes that they all behave the same. A 4.00 ratio with a 15/60 and a 4.00 ratio with a 12/48 will behave very differently. The ratio will be the same at the end of the day, but they will do that ratio differently.You are not sounding like Al.
IMHO Al never made that good point.
IMHO his wrong incorrect bull was always and probably still is an argument about ratio is a ratio, which is still wrong and not correct.
