With the market in a significant drawdown, there has been a renewed interest from investors in trend following strategies. Given its ability to limit losses during drawdowns and reduce volatility, that is certainly understandable. But like any investment strategy, it has both its strengths and its weaknesses. In this episode, we cover both of them and take a balanced look at the strategy. We also look at the details of implementing trend following strategies and what we have learned using them in the real world.
We hope you enjoy the discussion.
