Most trend following systems were popularized a long time ago (say 70's or so) when information took a lot longer to propagate. Even then, the trend following systems often relied on trading a basket of markets to be profitable. I think it would be difficult to be profitable as a pure trend follower unless you can combine it with fundamental or something other then price. For example, I predicted the low in the dollar like a couple years ago and that it would trend but this was based on various macro-sentiment factors and not technical analysis. Now, that would have have been an ideal opportunity to apply a trend following methodology. But, if you just apply trend following to some random basket, be prepared for sharp drawdowns and years of flat performance.

That's the problem with trend following. Which way is the trend? Is it up or down? It can look up and down based on what time frame you look at it.

As far as methods, something you might find works better then lagging indicators or moving averages is to use pivot levels or "median price" because that it should be more responsive.

Trend followers usually use break out/ break down ... donchian was pioneer in that so a donchian indicator would be useful

I like to use where we are compared to the VWAP to determine the daily trend.

W%R is a great trend measuring tool as it measures new highs and lows over 'x' periods . Literally almost any oscillator will measure/filter trend . I find W%R a great tool for systems development as it a very versatile filter

Take a look at @kevinkdog his threads, his book(s) all he has to offer.

Being totally honest, to the point and with the best of intentions, for your benefit, I am forced to say: You have a considerable amount to learn regarding trading asked a question like this. Find a mentor, a group of them, to help shorten your learning curve. Mentors via a book, works wonders to start. Hopefully starting with @kevinkdog.

You need to learn about yourself. Only you can answer the question you posed. Trading is very individual, a business. You have to find what is best suited for you. Your ability to tolerate risk etc etc.

It is an axiomatic fact that while you meditate you are speaking with your own spirit. In that state of mind you put certain questions to your spirit and the spirit answers: the light breaks forth and the reality is revealed.

I hope this helps. The problem with most automatic trading systems is not identifying a trend but staying out of non trending markets. I have seen many systems score big returns in a trend and give it all back and them some as it gets chopped up in non trending markets.
