Trend Following Confusion

Even with the release of the book Trend Following, there continues to be confusion as to what trend following is all about.

Here are some statements that are false:

1. Trend following is not about “numbers”.
2. Almost all mechanical trading systems break-down eventually.
3. Price analysis alone is not useful.
4. Trend following volatility makes trend following trading systems more risky.
5. Technical & fundamental analysis together is wise.
6. You must anticipate changes in the market.
7. Fundamentalal analysis will help reduce false entry signals.
