Momentum trading is one of the first things that many people think of when approaching quantitative finance. The idea is that investors will prefer to buy stocks that have been performing well, driving prices still higher, and will shy away from stocks with recent price drops, leading to less demand and further price decay. It is an intuitive way of modeling asset prices, and works in some cases.
Join us today at 12pm ET, we will discuss how to determine if a momentum model is appropriate for a given case, and ways to use that model to execute trades.
