Video tutorial: trading with ‘momentum’

Welcome to my latest spread betting video tutorial. This week, I want to deal with ‘momentum’. And how you can use momentum measures for spotting changes in the direction of a market.

Momentum is one of the most basic of all technical indicators, and appears on almost every spread betting platform. In short, it’s a way of measuring the strength of a trend, which can be either up or down. Yet momentum is a formidable methodology for making trades at low risk, and also for exiting profitable trades.

In this video, I will explain:

• What momentum measures;

• A simple way to use momentum, and how it provides solid clues for spotting looming changes in a trend. In turn, this will give you the most potential for making large gains;

• How to combine momentum with other trading methods

• If you’re a new reader, or need a reminder about some of the methods I refer to in my trades, then do have a look at the rest of my introductory videos:
