When you master your craft (trading system) and can execute flawlessly - There is a price you pay - Work (trading) becomes boring.
However, the financial rewards become astronomical, just ask Tiger Woods or Roger Federer. ....And when you ask them how
they MASTERED THEIR 'CRAFT', they will tell you, it isnt the mechanics or system of their game that takes them to the top, but rather,
the six inches of space between their ears that they have learned to manage and master. Trading is no different. ~

In my opinion, trading momentum is for the investor that wants to get paid right now. It is nothing more then participating in a trend.
However, momentum investing is 'NOT' a good 'risk/reward' trade. In fact it is risky because you are betting on other investors to keep
buying in the face of higher prices by chasing prices. We are trying to profit from investors' fear of 'MISSING THE MOVE'.
However, you can manage this risk well. How? Because you can always sell (if your wrong).

Acacia's 35% first-day pop is best of 2016
Acacia Communications (ACIA) priced at $23, the high end of the range, and popped 35% on Friday. The first venture-backed tech
IPO of 2016 came to market well below its optical peers despite Acacia's much faster growth and superior margins. The company
will have to maneuver past a recent trade restriction on its top customer, but thanks to an industry-wide data center upgrade, the
demand for its high-speed optical networking products may be great enough for them to reach the end customers. Acacia's
success suggests that IPO investors are still interested in growth stocks - an encouraging sign for the high-growth tech names in the
backlog. (Source: Renaissance Capital LLC; an SEC-registered investment adviser)
