is seems every trading system ........


how could a system be sucessful going long and not going with the trend .?

so it would be reasonable to think every sucessful system HAS to go with the trend .?

a system of selling uncovered options and investing in inverse etf , would be an obvious example , of going away from an uptrend .

someone help me understand this , if im wrong .


thanks


tommy

Hi Tommy

There are many successful counter trend stategies . Some traders find them easier .
Usually it is easier to swim in the direction of the current , but some traders swim upstream .

Cheers

Hi there ,

you can sell uncovered options and invest in invers etfs and still be going with the trend .

Also , reversals within a larger trend is a common strategy . The probabilities tend to to be higher if it ' s a counter trend reversal I ' m the direction of a larger trend .
