What is Trend Investing and Trading?
Trend investing trading is a strategy that trys to obtain gains through the analysis of an asset's price momentum either up or down. The trend investor trader enters into a long position when a stock is trending upward with successively higher highs. Vice versa, a short position is taken when the stock is in a down trend with successively lower highs.
This investing trading strategy assumes that the present direction of the stock will continue into the future. It can be used by short, intermediate, or long-term investors traders. Regardless of their chosen time frame, investors traders will remain in their position until they believe the trend has reversed. Take note that reversals may occur at different times for each time frame.
A common cliche in trend investing and trading is "The Trend is Your Friend". It means the primary trend is where the current overall strength is until it reverses at some point and time. Trading with strength and the primary trend is a generally a lower risk higher reward way of investing and trading. Investing and trading with the counter trend to the main trend is generally a more higher risk lower reward way to invest and trade in the markets. Try to invest and trade where the current strength is, the primary trend. If you are investing and trading with the counter trend, keep your stop-loss tight.
