What is trend following?

Trend Following is a trading strategy that follows the current market trend. For this style of trading, the directional movement of the price is being identified and the trend followed until it reverses. Traders using the Trend Following strategy do not aim to predict certain price levels, they simply follow the market trend. A trend is defined by the fact that the majority of market participants possess and hold the same market opinion over a longer period of time. Now and then there are times when the market follows a very long trend. Even beginners on the market and followers can make good money with Trend Following in these market phases. A so-called stock market bubble is the result of an exaggerated trend; when it bursts, it is often followed by a strong counter-movement.
