6:30 – 7:15  “Two Centuries of Price Momentum, Around the World” Mikhail Samonov, Senior Portfolio Manager, Forefront Analytics

Price Momentum is a widely utilized factor in many investment portfolios, yet compared to other factors like value and quality, it has a sort of a stigma around it within some academic circles. As evidence of momentum’s prevailing importance, we provide fresh and strong evidence of momentum strategy returns on the previously untested data, back to 1800 in the U.S. Stocks, Country Sectors, Equity, Fixed Income and Currency markets, and Commodity futures. Importantly, the extended history allows us to observe important features behind momentum crashes that are critical to consider in practice.
