A cautionary note, stock trading strategies are supported by the belief that Federal Reserve policy support risk-on in the equity markets. However, trend following strategies tend not to be supported when investor risk preferences have changed, that is, cash becomes a preferred asset class. In the last nine months we have had two time periods that were classic risk-off where the market dropped 12% in a short period of time. The Dow and S&P 500 are currently under where they were a year ago. S&P 500 earnings have dropped 18.5% from the peak in 9/30/2014. I would bet that fundamental investment strategies will be a better bet going forward. Of course you have to believe that this time is NOT different.
