Overview

In this must-have resource, author Gregory Morris—Chairman of the Investment Committee for Stadion Money Management—draws on his years of experience to offer a process for analyzing the present state of the marketplace in order to maximize investment possibilities. Throughout the book, Morris presents compelling evidence that debunks commonly held investing myths that typically hold investors back. Filled with practical examples, and based on solid research and data, Investing with the Trend explains why all too often well-accepted theories on finance, economics, and the market in general can keep investors from reaching their investing goals.

Morris's approach, which he skillfully implemented while Stadion's Chief Technical Analyst, is designed to help investors capture most of the market's good times while avoiding the bad. To get started with the process, Morris outlines four essential indicator types and defines the most common investing terms. In clear language, he describes this rules-based technical approach to investing that consistently outperforms market averages.

Engaging and informative, Investing with the Trend offers an insider's view of how to evaluate the market through a variety of technical indicators. As Morris explains, each indicator is assigned a weight based on its history as a driver of returns. To maximize investment potential, Morris advises that investors adjust their portfolio exposure from cash and fully invest in response to the aggregate value of the indicators. This method has consistently provided better returns than a buy-and-hold approach and without taking on extra risk. In contrast with modern investment theory, which equates risk with volatility, Morris equates risk with portfolio drawdown—a distinction that is the foundation of his entire investing approach.

As the title implies, this important book reveals that markets tend toward trendiness and that technical analysis, when properly used, can measure the trend of the market at any point in time. Sure to be any investor's key to financial success and backed by the author's investment performance, Investing with the Trend provides an innovative way to use technical analysis to minimize risk and outperform market averages.
