I have no problem with the key idea of holding onto a financial instrument for as long as possible while a trend develops, in order to run the profit. What I do have a problem with is waiting for a trend to develop before taking the position in the first place.

The trend following style of trading is a largely mechanical trading style; we often hear the expression The Trend Is Your Friend, but just how true is this truism?

Here I look at the shorter-term swing trading approach and how you can switch automatically from swing trading to trend following. In my previous article I alluded to the fact that a swing trader should always place a protective stop order just below the observed trading range.

The trading pattern involves first establishing a long position at (let’s say) £1-per-point, at what you consider to be the bottom of the trading range. You then reverse the trade at what you judge to be the top of the trading range.
