Stockopedia explains Rel Strength

Research indicates that relative strength is a negative signal in the near-term but generally a positive indicator in the medium (6-24 months).

A study by Hancock found that a momentum-based strategy outperformed a broad universe of U.S. stocks by nearly 4% per year from 1927-2009. Research has shown that momentum is particularly beneficial when combined with a value style because the two are negatively correlated. Moskowitz and Grinblatt conclude that "A value-momentum combination mitigates the extreme negative return episodes a value investor will face (e.g., the tech boom of the late 1990s and early 2000 or a dismal year like 2008)"

However, momentum-based strategies have been shown to suffer badly during times of extreme market volatility such as the 2008/09 crisis.
