It is a strategy that seeks to profit from long-term, medium-term, or short-term movements in various markets. Trend following traders do not attempt to forecast or predict specific price levels; instead, they simply ride the trend. These traders usually enter the market after the trend has “properly” established itself, betting that the trend will last a long time and thus foregoing the initial turning point profit. A market “trend” is the tendency of a financial market price to move in a particular direction over time. If the trend reverses, they exit and wait for the turn to become a trend in the opposite direction. If their rules indicate an exit, the traders exit but re-enter when the trend initiates again.
