What are 'Momentum Trades'
Momentum trades is an investment strategy that aims to capitalize on the continuance of existing trends in the market. To participate in momentum investing, a trader takes a long position in a stock that has shown an upward trending price. The basic idea is that once a trend is established, it is more likely to continue in that direction than to move against the trend. We have identified a winning momentum strategy that has a superior performance track record. Over the past two years, we average 10% gain per trade with an average holding period of 2 months.
