Computer-Driven, Automatic Trading Strategies Score Big

From WSJ:

Despite the popular conception of hedge funds as masters of global economic trends, these managers [read: TREND FOLLOWING] typically don’t have a strong view of where individual markets are headed. Instead, they frequently use significant leverage, or borrowed money, to invest based on momentum, using computer models to forecast which prices will continue rising or falling. That can pay off in a big way even when they don’t precisely predict the headlines. For instance, Cantab Capital, the roughly $5 billion U.K. firm founded by former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. partner Ewan Kirk, scored a 13% gain in January, according to investor documents and a person familiar with the firm.

Nice. More on Cantab.
