    One thought on “Dual Momentum Investing: An Innovative Strategy for Higher Returns with Lower Risk”

    1. An elegant survey of modern financial theories and a deep-dive into one 'simple' innovation (dual momentum) that appears to outperform established investment strategies. Succinct yet comprehensive, and a compelling read.

    2. Easy read, well documented and backed up with facts. Counter intuitive to 'buy low sell high' value investing. Will be referring back to this book regularly.

    3. QOTD1Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.- Leonardo da VinciOne more this funny little gem comes out of nowhere.QOTD2In the words of Richard Driehaus, "The stock market is like a woman. You observe her. You respond to her. And you respect her." That is not as easy as it sounds. Just ask my ex-wife.- Gary Antonacci, Dual Momentum Investing(rim shot, he he!)This is a good investment book. I am a BIG momentum and relative strength guy. The most positive aspect of the book is its simplicity. T [...]

    4. This is a very interesting strategy that's been tested over many decades. I wish I had noted that there was a glossary at the end. Some of the jargon threw me and I couldn't read the charts on my Kindle. But well worth reading. Now I've got to try it out!

    5. The first part of the book was a great recap of all the major discoveries in the field of finance and investing. The second part is the actual strategy to follow. Since I read a couple of other books on momentum, the strategy in its core looked quite similar to others. Each author that I read had his own way of calculating relative momentum and having a filter criteria which some defined as a Moving Average or in this case absolute momentum. Despite the different jargon they are actually the sam [...]

    6. The author presents an intriguing investment strategy which potentially offers advantages over the traditional 70/30 index fund approach. I 19m not sure there was really enough material for an entire book, but that 19s not why you buy a book like this anyway.

    7. GreatThe book is a home run. Loaded with facts, stats, history, comparisons, and interesting stories like the guy who supported the random walk theory of markets who gave his money to Buffett to trade. A must read for traders who need to be investing.

    8. The ideas and content are quite good, and the book is well researched and well argued. The only trouble is that the actual "how to" isn't laid out very well.

    9. To invest, one needs a strategy. A simple one is the three-fund-approach by the bogleheads on the related forum. A different kind of strategy is Dual Momentum by Gari Antonacci. In his book, Antonacci offers what he calls "a do-it-yourself" easy approach to investing based on his research going all the way back to turn of the previous century. Step by step, the book outlines ideas and methods to approaching two simple tools, relative and absolute momentum, which Gary combines in what he calls th [...]

    10. Pretty good book for a financial book. THe approach is interesting and there are a few web sites you can back test the approach and see if it works for you.I liked the discussion of other investing options and approaches, and thought that was well done.As usual though, the book is a bit of a tease - introduces the concept and gives a simple example to follow, and then the usual "at my firm we have a more complex model that we feel does better, etc etc etc". Then again I understand it is the auth [...]

    11. A detailed build up of the evidence for the out performance available from a momentum or trend -following approach. Essential reading for the buy-and-hold brigade.

    12. This book presents some clear ideas on how to use momentum to minimize risk in investing however, it stops short of providing the practical details needed to really implement it. Much of the data he uses is based on indices and, as such, doesn't represent something one can actually invest in. While ETF's do cover those indices now, their history is relatively short.Overall, I think it's worth reading but don't read too much in to it. This works best when using two or three ETF's that are not str [...]

    13. I must be too daft to appreciate this book. Just what is the methodology and how do we replicate it in practice? Let me read it again.
