All too often, investors try to decode the market. That’s great because it means they’re involved, they’re thinking about their money, and they’re trying to do something about it.
Momentum investing has a bad rap.
Over the past 35 years I’ve heard it referred to as a “strategy for idiots,” or a foolish undertaking on par with a good old-fashioned game of “hot potato” … usually by Wall Street types or academics who look dismissively down their nose at anyone suggesting something different.
The irony, of course, is that momentum investing works.
What’s more, momentum investing:
- Is simple to use
- Easy to understand; and,
- Can keep you out of trouble if the markets roll over
The premise is very straightforward.
