Daryl Montgomery submits: Investors make the most consistent money by following bigger trends and going long in uptrends or shorting into downtrends. Longer term trends are not unidirectional however, but subject to either sharp or intermediate term reversals. At those points, it is best to get out of the market until the uptrend or downtrend resumes.
