I do not understand why trend following is not a usual part of a portfolio. Investment advisors generally refer to the mix of stocks and bonds and make no reference to trend following. I want to implement a (passive) trend following in my portfolio, using a 200-day MA. However, I do not know how big this part of a portfolio should be.
1. Brokers/Wall Street make big fees from wild promises. That’s why.
2. There is no one size fits all answer for what percentage trend following should be in your portfolio.
3. See my faqs.
