Trend Following – India

Trend Following – India

Trend Following – Focus on Absolute Yield

“Trend Following” or “Be on The Right Side” is a trading system based on the principal of price analysis. Trend Following tries to take advantage of long, medium or short-term moves of the market. Smart trader takes advantage of these market trends by observing the current direction & using this to decide whether to buy or sell.

The objective of Trend Following is to produce absolute returns irrespective of bullish or bearish market condition. The success of trading system works on following principles –

  • Strict Money & Risk Management
  • Riding the Trend & “No Prediction”
  • Emotionless Mechanical Execution
  • Discipline & Consistency to follow the System

Some of the characteristics of the Trend following system are –

  1. Go with directional trend.
  2. Proven scientific approach to trading backed by Backtesting
  3. One may suffer temporary drawdown in case Sideways market (means no directional trend).

Trend following can be done in Indices ( Nifty & bank Nifty) or in stocks future.

What are the asset classes?

 Asset Classes are Equity index and Equity, Commodity, Currency future or any other derivative asset class.But, presently, we have done backtesting in  Nifty & Bank Nifty.

Who should follow “trend following”?

  • Client is having money but no time.
  • Those who want to make money in bull & bear market.
  • Portfolio investor who is willing to hedge his risk & also wants to participate in market rally.

And it is not for

  • Those who wants to earn money instantly
  • Person who believe in prediction
  • Day-trader

How trend following scores over fundamental & technical?

Trend follower has pre-defined rules which are time-tested & objective in nature.

Parameter Technical  (Discretionary) Fundamental Trend Following
Based on Price, vol. & Indicators Balance sheet& many more Price
Prediction of price Yes Yes No
Back testing No No Yes
Target Yes Yes No
Emotion partly yes Yes No
Proven Consistence & track record No No Yes
Rules Complex Complex Simple

When trend following works the best?

It works the best in tending market condition. The investment objective is to make return from up & down market condition.  But, it does not work well in sideways market (means no clear directional trend).

Like in 2008 (bear market), trend follower made fortune.
Pic1Will too many trend followers make strategies less profitable?

 The profitability of Trend following will decline only when human emotions: greed, fear and hope get disappeared.

How risky is trend following?

Life is risky. One can have car accident while cross the street. But if you have concrete plan, risk can be managed.

What is money Management?

Money management, or position sizing, is critical component of trend following system.

It accesses

Risk per trade

  • How much quantity to trade on how-much amount by accessing the risk per trade.

Is Leverage used in trend following? 

All great traders made fortune using leverage. But trend following is not about using reckless leverage. It follows strict money & risk management technique.

If trend following works so well, why it is used by few participants and not popular? 

We feel that –

  • Investors want to hear prediction backed by great fundamental analysis. These stories are more  appealing  to them rather than a simple statement saying :  “just follow the trend”
  • Trend following is the “core strategy” used by FIIs, Commodity Trading Advisors ( CTA) , & Futures Fund Manager to make money.

Can Trend following be applied to day trading?

Should Investor choose Dividend or Rental Income- Investor perspective

Food for thought for Priority Investor – Dividend and Rental Income approach

After 2008 global turmoil, there has been a debate on earning from dividend yield stocks and earning from rental property (Residential and as well as commercial).

“Google Search” now can predict Next Stock market Crash

Do you remember Amitabh Bachchan (famous Indian Actor) dialog in “PAA” ( a Hindi Indian Movie) that “Google se Bach ke kaha Jaoge” ( Means You cannot escape from Google”). Yes, now it is true for stock market investor also. By looking at a specific topics (rather Keyword) people search for on internet by using Google search, the new analysis can tell you is the stock market is headed for a crash?

As per the study by the National Academy of Sciences, researchers from Warwick Business School & Boston University have created a method to identify search terms that precede a stock market crash. They have developed algorithms to identify the trend based on search engine. The algorithms based on Wikipedia into different financial topics such as “management,” “business,” & “bank). The institute has done extensive research based on these algorithm & then consulted Google Trends to find spikes in business- and politics-related queries. Based on their study, they have found “rise in certain terms” which can predict stock market falls in advance.
Basis of the Study

Search engines “Google” record everything we search for. Google has supreme leadership position with 114.73 billion search queries or have around 65.2 % market share. China search giant Baidu has 8.2 % and Yahoo has around 4.9 percent%. The method shows that increases in searches proceeded falls in the stock market. Based on Google Search optimization, the researcher applied an appropriate set of keywords related to finance.
Records of these search queries allow the research to learn about how people gather information online before making any investment decisions in the real world. So, there is a link between search & action. These data certainly help to finds trend from what large groups of people may do.
Summary of Observation



The government has raised long awaited FDI in insurance from 26% to 49% in the Union Budget 2014- 15. It is expected that the government wants to promote “FDI” selectively. The proposal is pending since 2008. The increase in the FDI limit to 49% would certainly help domestic insurance firms to get access to the much needed capital from its overseas partners.. This is the big positive & stocks like , Max India, Bajaj Finserve , Exide industry Aditya Birla Nuvo is like to get benefited.

With this, lets understand the impact on longer term perspective.
As per Harsha Kapoor, Managing Partner – Avizare Solutions,) FDI Will make the Indian Insurance sector more vibrant and dynamic in the intermediate and long term. Insurance companies and other players have to gear-up and plan now to reap the future benefits. They have prepared an excellent fundamental report & the report can be viwed at link below-

Longer term Growth Driver
1) Rising income & growth of middle class
2) Financial Sophistication
3) Societal changes and urbanization

Focus of Insurance will shift to –
• Shift focus to untapped markets
• innovate on products and services
• Strengthen risk management practices
• Achieve operational efficiency

Foreign Partner will have first right of refusal
Another issue that the Government’s decision to increase Foreign Direct Investment ( FDI) cap in the insurance sector to 49% could reopen the prickly issue of pricing the additional 23% stake sale to the foreign partner. The much needed increase will like to t open gate. Most insurance joint ventures (Like SBI life , HDFC life etc) have given its alliance partner “the right of first refusal” rights to buy additional stake. This includes, company like like SBI Life and HDFC Life etc. As per HDFC Standard life, the first right to buy stake for at market price is with Standard life, if limits are raised.
