For many years, academic researchers believed a stock’s performance could be explained by three primary factors: the market where the stock traded, the size of the company, and the stock’s style, along a continuum from shares of fast-expanding “growth” companies to seemingly cheap value stocks. But now, the academic community has “coalesced” around recognition of momentum as the “fourth factor,” says Mr. Rekenthaler, a sentiment echoed in recent research. Momentum, as you may recall, is the name academics use for relative strength.  Academic research began appearing on momentum in ...

REVIEWS AND OPINIONS
Dow Stagnation as Well as Volatility
“The WSJ’s Jason Zweig points out that last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose above 10,000-again. Since March 16, 1999, when it first touched 10,000 in intraday trading, the Dow has bounced over that threshold and back 63 times. Friday, the index closed 219.6 points below where it stood exactly 11 years ago. This isn’t the first time stocks have been stuck on a seemingly endless pogo-stick ride. On Jan. 18, 1966, the Dow hit an intraday high of 1,000.50. It broke through the four-digit barrier three more times that January and February, then faded. The Dow cracked 1,000 again in 1972 and 1976, then ... market research, surveys and trends
Combine Momentum with Low Volatility? - CXO Advisory
which focuses on momentum investing. One idea that the author demonstrated works well, and which I don’t recall having been discussed on your web site, is that one can greatly reduce drawdowns in momentum investing, with little impact to returns, by accounting for volatility when determining Relative Strength. For example, defining a low-volatility Relative Strength as the six month return divided by the standard deviation seems to give a much better risk-adjusted reward than Relative Strength alone. If you read the book some time, I’d be interesting in your views on this. The author ... market research, surveys and trends

What's the philosophy of investing?
ery few investors give a serious thought to the underlying issues involved in an investing style and if it fits their personal risk-profile, says Devangshu Datta. Trend following, or going with the herd as it's less politely described, is safe from an emotional viewpoint. If you're wrong, so is the crowd and misery loves company. Also, since money does move prices, the probability of a "win" is higher. Successful trend followers are just a little late latching onto a new trade and just a little early in closing out. By being slightly late into the trade, you allow it to build up momentum. By getting out a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Three Reasons Why Japanese Yen ETFs Are Headed For A Crash
With ongoing weakness in Europe pushing the euro to double digit losses against major rival currencies this year, many investors have sought out safe havens such as the U.S. dollar to ride out the storm. The presence of general economic uncertainty has sent the greenback sharply higher against virtually every major currency year-to-date. However, a few countries have seen currencies rise against the dollar despite the obvious appeal of the U.S. currency in tumultuous environments. One of these is Japan, as the yen has proven to be stubbornly strong despite implementation of policies designed to weaken the currency [also see Top ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Books dealing with mutual fund market timing as a ...
I am researching historical practices of mutual fund market timing for the period prior to September 2003. This is an investment approach that involves rapidly switching funds between an equity mutual fund and a money market mutual fund. Since September of 2003 there has been an industry wide crack down on the practice of mutual fund market timing and a number of mutual funds have paid large settlements to the SEC to settle charges that they allowed market timing that was not in the best interest of mutual fund shareholders. The particular angle that I am researching is the extent to which mutual fund market timing was an ...
