Saw this article and immediately thought about trend following. There are the obvious aspects like being systematic, following the trend lines and thinking for the longer term. The interesting part was the discussion of the retiree and the temptation of the markets to derail his disciplined approach. I see the temptation of the markets being the greatest enemy to the discipline required to be a trend-following trader. Please enjoy.
PS. Thanks for you all your work. It’s really appreciated.
