Ever since the 1980s, when the now-infamous "Turtle Traders" beat the market with simple strategies based on breakouts to new high prices, momentum investing has been shown to be a potentially profitable strategy. 

In fact, many academics now agree that ‘momentum’ is one of the most powerful drivers of returns in financial assets’.

With this in mind, shares in Mader (ASX:MAD) have been in an uptrend in recent months, showing signs of strong price momentum. The question now for investors is whether that price strength will continue.

Knowing exactly what drives relative strength in share prices can help you find profitable momentum trades.

  • 1 Month: 15.5%
  • 6 Months: 104.6%
  • 12 Months: 144.1%

Relative strength is a useful tool in the armoury of technical traders and investors. It’s an instant measure of how a stock has performed in comparison with a benchmark.
