Trend Followers are not Lucky

I have heard pretty much it all. I have heard trend followers are lucky. I have heard during the inevitable drawdowns and tough periods trend following is dead. On both accounts this is simply not true. Successful Trend followers are consistent. They use a simple robust methodology that trades all markets the same, use extreme risk and money management and have the patience & discipline to let the plan work over time.

It is not the system or the indicator. The trade needs to be put on. One can have the greatest system or model but if subjective discretion over rides the the trading system, failure will be at hand.

The reality that there are numerous successful trend follower for decades not just years disputes the fact that trend followers are lucky. While the world was imploding in 2007-2008, trend followers made fortunes for themselves and their investors. These are audited real time numbers.

You too can learn how to trend follow. It takes an inner fortitude. If you want to be one of my students, you can email me and we can arrange a time to speak.

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance. The risk of loss in trading futures contracts, commodity options or forex can be substantial, and therefore investors should understand the risks involved in taking leveraged positions and must assume responsibility for the risks associated with such investments and for their results. You should carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources.
