Tuesday, July 26, 2022 - 10:10 am to 10:40 am EDT Institutional Trend Following Strategies for Self-Directed Investors Focus: TRADING

Trend identification is arguably the most important concept in technical analysis. While many traders explain their process in simple terms: "cut losses short, let winners run," applying these rules requires discipline. Institutional portfolio managers use a repeatable, rules-based system to guide their risk management and alpha capture.

In this session, Alex Cole and Tyler Wood will discuss a responsible top-down approach to market analysis and how the best performing institutional fund managers employ technical analysis in their investment process. Attendees will leave with an understanding of key concepts for trend, momentum, volume, and volatility, and how they apply to the current market environment and the performance of investment managers in any market regime.

Learn more about how institutional traders focus on risk management, position sizing, and a disciplined approach to capturing returns across multiple asset classes. In this session, attendees will learn how to structure their own disciplined trading process with consistent rules that fit their trading strategy, but more importantly to avoid analysis paralysis by keeping their focus on price, not endless indicators. Alex and Tyler will specifically discuss concepts such as relative strength, divergence, momentum, and trend analysis with a view on current markets and opportunities for investors of any size.
