An investment strategy in which one makes investment decisions based on the perceived momentum of the securities in which one invests. That is, an investor buys when he/she believes a security is trending upward, and sells when he/she believes it is trending downward. Trend trading may be used for short-term and long-term investing, though the indicators for a trend reversal may change for each.
