    hi andreas, im an indian ive made a trend following stratergy on the indian equity index-future its both long and short and used it for 8 months now ....however i read your article on not goin long and short and going only long....why is this... my system takes about 5 trades every month(based on short term trend following-it has been tested for 33 months)...
    and i have noticed that as per my system.. i tend to be short for 2 months in a year and long for 10 months...but the corrections(bull market corrections tend to be very short term and fast ) do add some value
    also andreas ive made a system that longs 100 stocks and shorts 100 stocks....(fundamental selections based on quants and using a protective stop loss on the short side no stop loss on buy trades -typically trying to not have that much exposure the stratergy does work well and beats the index by 40 percent margin)

    i wish to learn from you as im fairly new to this business !!

    Sterling rally unlikely to last

    Chief Investment Officer / ACIES Asset Management
    Switzerland
    Staying short sterling has been one of the best trend plays in the FX space. We haven't seen a new low since late February, but don't mistake that for a trend reversal. All indications are that this is just a pause in the bear trend.

    Gilt bull market is down but not out

    Chief Investment Officer / ACIES Asset Management
    Switzerland
    This month, the Long Gilt has fallen back a bit. The bull market is by no means broken, so the probabilities are on the side of a swift recovery. What we're doing in this trade idea is to buy into the short-term weakness, and doing the opposite of the larger trend followers.

    What's with the silver breakout?

    Chief Investment Officer / ACIES Asset Management
    Switzerland
    What's with the silver breakout?
    Precious metals have been an incredibly poor investment for the past few years. Gold and silver have been falling practically non-stop since early 2011. What's interesting with silver right now, however, is the very strong turnaround we're watching.

    EURGBP dip coming to an end

    Chief Investment Officer / ACIES Asset Management
    Switzerland
    It's been an amazing ride in the EURGBP market. The market started moving up already in January, but it took over a month before most trend followers entered on the long side. In the past few weeks however, we've seen a very interesting pullback in the trend. What we're looking at is a classic counter-trend setup and it looks ripe to buy into.

    My view is that it likely comes up, but this particular trade hit the stop (barely).

    You're not fooling anyone, copper.

    Chief Investment Officer / ACIES Asset Management
    Switzerland
    You're not fooling anyone, copper.
    While the gold market has made a valiant attempt to break the bear spell and still has a chance to achieve it, the copper market looks depressed. The bear market rally in copper this year looks more like a "me-too" reaction to gold's situation, and it's very likely to fail and see prices right back down again.

    I will if I'm by the screens. Odds are that I might not be, since I'm heading to NY tomorrow and will stay there for a week...

    Pullback is making sugar even sweeter

    Chief Investment Officer / ACIES Asset Management
    Switzerland
    Sugar prices have risen since September last year in what appears to be quite a credible trend reversal. Up till then, sugar prices had fallen for several years. The reversal now looks very promising and trend-following futures funds are already loading up. What makes this market particularly interesting right now is the short-term dip.

    Chief Investment Officer / ACIES Asset Management
    Switzerland
    How to trade the bearishly biased gas market
    Trading natural gas can be fun. The market has a strong tendency to fall, and rallies tend to fail quickly, making them interesting short entry points. A bear rally right now is bringing the market very close to yet another short entry signal for our model. Here are some pointers for trading this bearishly biased market.
