The power of Trend investing-catch mega trends before masses

Trend investing; spotting new trends before the masses 

Trend investing boils down to catching a new Trend before the Masses Spot it 

A new trend can begin that is based on fake news or false data to create the illusion all is well. Remember that the truth or lies are just a matter of perception. One person will swear that he is telling the truth, while another will swear that he is lying. From an observer’s perspective, both are correct. They are convinced of their position, so all you will do is waste your time and energy trying to sway them. Instead, you are better of letting them battle it out, while you sit down and take a look at the real events that are unfolding, most of which the masses are oblivious too. The main principle of trend investing is not to focus on the noise factor but to pay attention to the “reality factor”. In other words, trend investing focuses on what is going on minus the morality or judgemental angle.

Trend Investing From an observer’s perspective

Personal views are on par with toilet paper regarding their relevance in determining trends. Oh, by the way, we also include ourselves into the equation. This is why we do not voice our personal opinions as nothing will change, and if we let our personal opinions cloud our judgement, then the ability to look at the situation objectively is lost.

Over time it gets easier and easier to do this, and then one day you wake up, and it is almost like breathing. Practice makes perfect, and there is no better time to start than today for tomorrow never comes. Today is the tomorrow you dreamed of starting something new yesterday but never did and most likely never will.   If you want to spot new trends you can’t allow your emotions to do the talking; once you emotions talk, logic goes out the window and stupidity

Trend investing: Your Emotions should not dictate what you do 

In order to spot new trends one should not allow one’s  emotions to do the talking; once your emotions take over, your logic goes out the window and stupidity is in charge of the situation.  This is the first principle you need to muster before you can develop the ability to spot new trends.

Trend Investing states that a Trend in Motion Is unstoppable 

This is why we (at the Tactical Investor) have repeatedly stated a trend in motion is unstoppable: whether you and I agree with it or whether it is morally right or wrong is irrelevant. Nothing can stop a trend in motion. This bull market is a perfect example of fake news driving a new trend; all the data imaginable has been manipulated to create the illusion that the economy is doing well. If we had allowed our personal opinions to dictate the way we trade, then like all the fools out there we have missed the biggest bull run of all time.  Moreover,  like so many of the clowns that shorted the markets, we would have lost our shirts, pants, and knickers in the process.

Trend investing provides you with the opportunity to see the real picture as opposed to the one the mass media forces you to focus on.  This is wy we never shorted the markets and instead used every strong pullback to open new long positions. The idea is to sell when the masses are dancing and buy when they are nervous.

Trend investing states that the trend is your friend, everything else is your foe. Mass Psychology clearly states that the crowds always oppose the trend and as a result, they are always on the losing end of a trade.
