Trend Following is a trading methodology that, seeks to capture trends across all markets, using proper risk management.
Trend trading is a trading style that attempts to capture gains through the analysis of an asset's momentum in a particular direction.
When the price is moving in one overall direction, such as up or down, that is called a trend.
rend trading strategies assume that security will continue to move in the same direction as it is currently trending.
Such strategies often contain a take-profit or stop-loss provision to lock in a profit or avoid big losses if a trend reversal occurs.
Trend trading is used by short-, intermediate-, and long-term traders.
