Abstract

Momentum is the premier market anomaly. It is nearly universal in its applicability. This paper examines multi-asset momentum with respect to what can make it most effective for momentum investors. We show that both absolute and relative momentum can enhance returns, but that absolute momentum does far more to lessen volatility and drawdown. We see that combining absolute and relative momentum gives the best results.
