Trend Following in Japan
Kingo Tanaka is one of the most successful traders in Japan. He is the developer of the long-term trend following program Dragon Horse, which earned a 102% return in 2000. Tanaka explains his returns by saying, I stuck to trend following. It was a common view that trend following did not work in Japanese commodities markets, but that was a conjecture never proven scientifically. While working at an Asian order desk Tanaka was able to analyze the tendencies of losing traders. He found two common characteristics. One was they tended to trade against market trends and two they used poor money management skills. Applying simple long-term trend following rules, Tanaka was able to develop a system that combated both problems. I was tired of seeing my customers lose money and get wiped out, said Tanaka, I wanted to help. Dragon Horse is named after the Chinese imaginary animal with a dragon head and horse body and is used to represent an outstanding person.
