You are in the market to make money. It is the same for us. To make that money, we need a trend, up or down. The market can also trend sideways but that will not help our goal of absolute returns. If you buy, you need to be able to sell higher. If you short, you need to be able to cover at a lower price. The trend or sustained movement in the market either up or down is where we make our profits.
Trend Following is a trading strategy that does not attempt to predict market movement but instead only to ride the trend when it does appear.
It does not rely on analysts, brokers, TV personalities or hot tips.
Trend Following instead relies on systematic rules and probabilites to make money over the long run.
We know we can't predict future prices so Trend Following makes sense.
