During bull and bear markets, there is a group of hedge funds and professional traders which have been consistently outperforming traditional investment strategies for the past 30 odd years.
They have shown remarkable uncorrelated performance and in the great bear market of they had record gains. These traders are highly secretive about their proprietary trading algorithms and often employ top PhDs in their research teams.
Yet, it is possible to replicate their trading performance with relatively simplistic models. These traders are trend following cross asset futures managers, also known as CTAs. Many books are written about them but none explain their strategies in such detail as to enable the reader to emulate their success and create their own trend following trading business, until now.
Following the Trend explains why most hopefuls fail by focusing on the wrong things, such as download and sell rules, and teaches the truly important parts of trend following. Many author can inspire their own reader with their story or perhaps their experience.
Not only the storyplot that share in the books. But also they write about the ability about something that you need illustration.
How to get the good score toefl, or how to teach your young ones, there are many kinds of book that you can get now. The authors in this world always try to improve their skill in writing, they also doing some analysis before they write with their book.
Only viewing or reviewing it can to be your solve difficulty if you get difficulties for ones knowledge. Kinds of this publication are various.
Not only by simply written or printed but also can you enjoy this book simply by e-book. In the modern era just like now, you just looking by your local mobile phone and searching what your problem. Right now, choose your ways to get more information about your reserve. Modelling strategies on equities properly require total return series and dividends details.
You need to analyze the total return series, trade the price series and have logic in place for how to handle the dividends when they come in. The potential for survivorship bias in single stock strategies is massive.
Many of those stocks are in the index because they had a massive price increase. They were not in before. They wouldn't have been on your radar when they had those returns. Check your data. Applying standard trend following models on single stocks is dumb. It doesn't matter whether you use breakout channels, moving averages or other indicators. Toggling parameters up and down won't help.
People who say that you should apply standard trend models on stocks also tend to be the people who lacks experience with professional trading or quant modeling but don't let that stop them from selling defunct trading system to unsuspecting retail traders at a few thousand bucks a pop.
The most common arguments for applying standard trend following models on stocks is based on anecdotal evidence and classic fallacies.
The first kind would be to point out that some hedge fund seems to be doing it with good results, without of course knowing anything about how they have adapted models for stocks, or to point out that someone's cousin got rich doing it. Hedge funds certainly don't run standard trend models on single stocks, though the often simplify the marketing pitch by calling it trend or momentum strategies.
I can assure you that real hedge funds are a little more sophisticated and are fully aware of the special situation in stocks. As for the cousin, well, going on anecdotal evidence anything is possible. Apparently there are people who made gazillions trading on financial astrology too. The fallacies are usually about mentioning stocks that went up a few thousand percent, and how trend following models totally would have captured this.
Disregarding of course the probabilities of having covered that stock when it was a small cap, the many times you would have been shaken out along the way, the allocation to this stock compared to the many that did less well etc. A massive simplification of the real world. This argument concentrates on the position level, and on the pro side we're just concerned with portfolio level results.
Does trend following really not work on stocks?
If you're willing to adapt your models and do something closer to momentum trading, you'll do just fine. But the return expectations cannot be the same as for futures. Not that it's necessarily lower, that's not the point.
But you'll be much more dependent on the overall state of the equity markets. You can't expect to make a killing in because you were supposedly short all the stocks. Would be nice if the real world worked like that though. How do I know that standard trend following does not work on stocks? Besides the common sense arguments of having lost the advantages of diversification and leverage, there's quite a bit of actual, empiric evidence.
I do this for a living. I have no reason to say that something works or does not work, unless that's based on experience and research.
I've modelled thousands of iterations of trend following models on every major index in the world. I've arrived at models that work and models that don't.
Standard trend models don't. So what can be done to make trend following work on stocks? Don't go short.
