Trend Sigma - Riding the MegaMove
There have always been huge trends in the markets. They are best characterized by the one thing they have in common: The typical trader and investor missed them!
Here is our approach to change that. On the surface it is quite simple...
Find a significant trend. It has to have an underlying reason with a large potential for change.
Try to get on the trend with a system that keeps losses in check. Using a system with a direct, implicit, or even statistical stop loss makes sense for many trading systems and especially for trend trading systems. If a trend is there, it will survive the stop. If it doesn't survive, there is no trend. Of course, this is only statistically true.
If a trade is far enough in the black, disconnect the system and hold the position with a stop near the original entry or switch to a system that allows for larger retracements.
All three parts are important. The first two are easily said but hard to accomplish.
Significant trends are hard to find. This is also a trial and error game. The many trends that turn out to be not so significant need a good trading system to keep the results of the short-term trading acceptable. Stop losses have to be limited, small gains have to be taken before they turn red, but trades have also to be held in order to make them a candidate for the switch.
A significant trend is easier to trade. It is more often smooth and will result in fewer trades ending with a stop loss or a gain that could have been bigger.
In other words, both parts, the effective trading system and the selection of a meaningful trend, support each other.
The third part is important to stay at times long enough on a trend that brings in huge gains.
