Trend Following View of the World

Unlike many traders, who typically employ a passive buy and hold strategy, and only depend on rising markets for profit, trend followers use dynamic strategies designed to take long positions (in a rising market) or short positions (in a declining market), to profit from both.

Trend Follower View of World:

  • Unstable world.
  • World is uncertain and dynamic.
  • Market players form rational beliefs but make mistakes.
  • Learning takes time; slower adjustment to information happens.
  • Fundamental changes are often unanticipated.

Non-Trend Follower View of World

  • Stable world.
  • World is knowable and static.
  • Market players generally form rational expectations.
  • Markets adjust quickly to new information.
  • Fundamentals do not change dramatically in the short run.

Given the world market turmoil, which view makes sense to you? Which view is real?
