Momentum Inflection Factor

Navigating momentum crashes using the first- and second-order derivatives of the momentum factor

In the complex world of investing, it's essential to navigate effectively and avoid potential pitfalls. Introducing our latest report, a deep dive into the power of Momentum Inflection Factor, a new approach to momentum investing that could redefine your strategies.

Investors frequently pursue tactics that leverage current trends, with momentum investing standing out as a popular method.

The momentum inflection factor examines both the first-order (momentum velocity) and second-order (momentum acceleration or momentum deceleration) alterations in momentum, employing them as a signaling mechanism.
